My Grandfather, He Shackleton Lived There
A Memory of Heysham.
I remember going to visit my grandfather, Henry Ewart Shackleton when he lived at Heysham Hall (as we called it) in a downstairs flat. This would have been in the early 1960's.
My understanding is that he purchased Heysham Hall, possibly in about 1926 and was instrumental in setting up the Holiday camp. He was a civil engineer and was involved with later developing the land as a housing estate.
My father remembers living there as a child.
If you have any further information on this period of history I would be most interested to hear it.
