Winstanley Family History - a Memory of Whittle-le-Woods.
Grand parents, aunts, uncles with Winstanley surname buried at St John's.
Staying at Tootle Terrace with relatives.
Recent visit July 2010 met with octogenarians and older ones who have lived in this area all their lives.
A photograph of my dad and some friends in a club house of some kind. Has been identified as Whittle Cricket club about 1930/35 when no catholics were allowed to join.
This catholic non-catholic divide is still vivid in those of vintage years.
Would like more information about Whittle-le-woods and the Cricket Club from its inception.
If this communication is successful I have many photographs and records of my interviews.
A memory shared by on Jul 20th, 2010.
