A chilly morn on Aspull moor
 A chilly morn on Aspull moor   by Ron Dawber  (Kodak compact camera)
The pair of houses at the font was an old farm house extended and refurbished, with new houses built along side. Nice little development. Just by the side of The Old Queens Head, now Aspull Spice.

Nice one Ron. That old farm house would have been the Leigh's farm, Alf and Jimmy Leigh, one was the father and the other the son, and I can't remember which was which. Used to help them out at harvest time and mucking out the big horses, the pig sties were next to the Methodist School yard, lovely smells.

Lovely photo Ron.... :-)
For those who were worried about me ...thank you so much for doing so....we are fine...lucky not to be too close to the fires...lots of smoke of course...there is a lot of devastation....but at this point no one has lost their lives... Cheers!!!

Nice photo, have noticed the houses being built, they do look nice. I think one of my cousins now lives there.

Thanks for letting us all know, Lizzie. I am glad to know you are safe.
My cousin lives in Brisbane so I always keep an eye on things such as this.
Love and best wishes for 2015.x

Ken R - I remember Jimmy Leigh - used to come across to Aspull rugby club watching - had a brother who worked at GPO , now lives in Standish I think

Glad you're ok Lizzie. Wintry photo today, yet somehow makes me think of Spring.

Good to hear Lizzie take care today it looks like it's going to be another bad one there. So far we have been lucky in Victoria.
Sorry, nice photo Ron
