Old Maps of Penn

Historic Maps of Penn and the local area.

Hi does anyone remember the riding school at the top of the common. I am trying to find an old friend of mine that worked there called Jill Allsop. We used to go riding over Penn Common and annoy the golfers. There was also a pub on the corner where everyone used to go from the riding school. I think that Jill moved to Wales.

1950s,my father used to work at Baggeridge colliery ,we sometimes waited for him at the bottom of the common, there was a little shop there to get refreshments,in the nice weather we could play football,we were a family of four lads. It has now been took over mostly by trees.
