Bolton Road Aspull, I'm guessing around the turn of the century. Written on the back of the photo "Bolton Road. Row at top of Old Fold. Pear Tree on extreme right" The pub has long gone and also the house on the far right but the four remaining houses remain. My wife's 89 year old aunty still lives in one and I thank her for the loan of the photo.

Excellent photo, Mick. I've found the remaining cottages on Google Street view, you can see the new gable end where the fourth cottage is.
Tell your Auntie thanks for the pic.

I'm curious to know if you think we may be related at all? My dad and his sisters were born and lived in Aspull for some years.

The Pear Tree Inn - what a find and many thanks Mick. My researches suggest that Sumner & Co. of Haig was the owner of the pub building. However, my great-great grandparents lived at the pub - Elijah and Mary Taylor (Nee Pendlebury) - at the time of the 1871 census in which Elijah described himself as Publican and Grocer. It would be great to hear from you, Mick. I have some slight history of the pub.
