A Grand Spell of Sunshine - The Life and Legacy of Francis FrithA Grand Spell of Sunshine - The Life and Legacy of Francis Frith


A Memory of Sale.

My maternal grandparents lived at The Beeches, 16 Clarendon Road and my parents and I lived with them for my first three years and then returned regularly for holidays for several years. I remember Worthington Park and always having to sit on the stone lions at the entrance (where are they now?). A Miss Dent cut my hair. There were lots of large houses in Clarendon Road, I always wished we lived in one, they looked exciting. Grandma used to go to the Scout House a couple of doors away to play whist. I was baptised at St Anne's Church. Granddad played crown bowls at the park.

With thanks to Elizabeth Hardcastle for this memory of Sale

I remember the Lions at the park - the last time I saw them they were in Sale Library.
