What a fabulous website!
I am the grandaughter of Hilda Hartley (of Dean Farm). Hilda is still going strong at 92yrs of age and lives in Southport. She is also a great-great grandmother to the youngest member of our family!
I have fond memories of visiting the farm and the Turkey Inn (to see 'Auntie' Annie) when I was very young.
We have many photographs of Hilda's younger life and her family - Jack and Mary Hartley (parents), her sisters Margaret and Betty and brother Ben (all now sadly gone).
Connie Judson (and her family also living in Southport - sadly now without Ken) and Hilda are still very close life-long friends.
I would be more than happy to contribute the photographs to this wonderful website!

What a brilliant collection of pictures and other detail.
Congratulations to all concerned !
Being a member of the Stell Family I was particularly interested in the section on Holme Mill where I worked from 1965 to 2011.There are many pictures which I had not seen before and it was good to see so many former colleagues looking so happy.
I do wish all those who have moved to the new production site in Hard Ings every success continuing to manufacture paper and cardboard tubes.
The site of Holme Mills will take on a new life. I am sure there will be many happy faces there in the future.

What a great site. I happened upon it whilst looking for information on an ancestor who died in Laycock in 1882. Her name was Annis Purdy, the wife of Thomas Purdy. In a photograph of the Methodist Chapel choir, I found images of two people with the name Purdy (perhaps grandchildren of Annis and Thomas Purdy).
Thanks for posting all the great photographs. A lovely village with a great history.
