Memories of Lea
My aunt, Elizabeth Stanford (nee Burns), died in 1942 in her late 30's, reputedly knocked down and killed by a motorcycle outside this pub. She lived for a while with her parents, Peter and Letitia Burns, in Wesham and later moved with them to Fleetwood. She was married in 1923 but the family have no photographs of her.
