good chippy - called at dinner last week but closed, having a 'break' - Nelly Pledge lookalike usually behind the counter!

Nice chips but very small bits of chips must be the chipping m/c

Brilliant! Very smart and appealing

A good traditional chippy, should be more of them.

I believe these premises originally belonged to O&C Rushton Ltd. I remember it being a chippy in the 50's, but it was constructed entirely of wood then. The couple who ran it at that time were a Mr. And Mrs. Hunt who lived across the road.

At one time there used to be a lot of these wooden shed chippys
I remember one in Shevy one in Appley Bridge and two in Eccleston, one of them is still there

The one in Eccleston's a good 'un an' all Mick, but it's closed on a Saturday, as I discovered, to my chagrin, the other day.

You would think Saturdays would be there busiest day.

The other wooden Eccleston chippy was a a chippy cafe as well but its now a brick built Chinese

Mick, no disrespect mate, but it would only take a few minutes to learn the difference between there, their and they're. Please don't take offence. At the end of the day, it's all about learning....is it not? All the best....Ozzy......P.S. Promise me you'll buck up.

I cant see the point Ozy because what ever way its spelt it still sounds the same.

Try reading it aloud and you will see.

Chippy,s ain't what they use to be,were illive when you get them home and dish them out they are like a ball of greasy string,and god knows what they put into so called mushy peas ,they are actually fluorescent In colour,think it's the cheap oil they cook the chips in today,maybe someone out there knows better. Stick to beans toast these days.

Luv the name!
For years a chip pan sat on the stove in our house feeding a generation.
