Black And White House Next To Lower Chequer - a Memory of Sandbach.
This was the family home of Harold and Dora Bagnall (my Grandparents) until the 1960s. The address used to be 21 Hawk Street and I was told as a child the incline next to Lower Chequer was for people to disembark from the stagecoach. I was also told although I cannot confirm this that the Lower Chequer was a stop off on the main road to London. I have very happy memories of my childhood spent here when Sandbach was completely surrounded by farmland.
Every September I would stay for Wakes Week when the fair came to Sandbach and was
sited on the Car Park by the Bus terminus. My Brother lived in the black and white house opposite but this was demolished and the present house built on the land.
