Hi Keith thank you so much for posting this article of our great Auntie Charlotte.I knew about her being honoured with the B E M but have never seen the newspaper article before. a fantastic piece of local history.
Whereabouts in Park Lane was Willow Street?
Keith. Did your great aunt work on the screens at the Maypole Colliery?.Her features seem ever so familiar to me. Mentioning Park Lane, that was the name of the lane that led to the Maypole.
Keith. if she did work at the Maypole, go to WORK, go down to COLLIERY LASSES, there is a photograph of all the Maypole pit brow ladies. 1949.
Willow Street was off Warrington Road opposite the start of the dual carriageway on leaving the slip road from junction 25 of the M6. The old Wigan Borough boundary.
Albert auntie Charlotte worked at Landgate and the Crow pit( Long Lane colliery).
ASH ST,THORN ST,WILLOW ST:A49 just north of Derbyshire house farm.jct 25 m6 they were demolished years ago
Willow Street is near my house on Warrington Road, Abram, not Park Lane.
South of the farm.
