JR - you may already know this, but another local site to feature in your documentary could be the building that was formerly the Old Dog public house. This was where George Lyon was laid out after his body was brought back from Lancaster, prior to interment. The building has ben converted into cottages, but is substantially the same building. It is where Higher Lane joins up with the bottom of Alma Hill in Upholland - now called Old Dog Cottages on a little plaque on the outside wall.
