I don't know how of the blacksmiths is but the cottage next door is being turned into a cafe. Another old cottage lost. There is already a cafe in the village!

Mick, the other day we were talking on album, about John Pit and the locos and Cliff Moss, this looks like the small row of stone houses where he lived.


Comment by Mick on 21st November 2014 at 08:47
Ken I wrote this on Album the only Cliff I know who lived there and his dad cut hair in a shed was Cliff Foster his dad was Tom and mother was Lily
Cliff married a miss Blackburn who used to teach at St Maries


Comment by Mick on 21st November 2014 at 09:06
In September 1947 a child was born in the old blacksmiths stable and the parents Alice and Joseph name their child Mick.

Who's Cliff Moss Ken R ?
Do you mean Cliff Foster ? he lived in one of them cottages.


Comment by Roy on 21st November 2014 at 10:16
Spot on Mick, Cliff Foster it was. Good footballer was Cliff, i worked with him for quite a while. He played for Southport around 1952.


Comment by Cyril on 21st November 2014 at 13:43
Is he the same Cliff Foster that worked as a fitter at the infirmary


Comment by Roy on 21st November 2014 at 17:11
Yes that will be him, i worked with him in an engineering workshop in Leigh. The lad who owns, or owned this cottage worked in the same workshop at the same time.


Comment by Mick on 21st November 2014 at 17:57
Cyril did the Cliff Foster who worked at the Hospital as a fitter have a dad called Tom who used to cut hair in his shed


Comment by alan lad on 21st November 2014 at 21:17
Sorry for previous post on Cliff moss but I always thought they were one of the same moss/foster it was his dad who cut hair int shed cos he did mine a time or two when I visited his house with my nan who was his auntie


Comment by Cyril on 22nd November 2014 at 18:29
I don't know Mick, and he can't be asked as he sadly died with asbestosis, quite a few years ago now, no idea if his wife or son is still living on Silverdale.
