Good picture of a familiar scene. It always reminds me of a village green of old!

Shop facing was Aspull Moor Post Office - family who owned it were called Proctor. Shop on edge of parade was Ken Cowap, betting shop.

Hi' Gary Leece. You mentioned Ken Cowap,I thought it was Eric Cowap who owned the shop. Do you know if Ken and Eric are still around?Knew them well but that was years ago.

Al - it was under the Ken Cowap label but I recall locals referring to "Eric" in the shop.
No idea as to their whereabouts having left Aspull in 1969. I live on Tyneside and return to Aspull once or twice a year to tend the family graves.
Best wishes.

Hi; Gary thanks for the reply,.The last time I was in touch with Eric ,was about five years ago.
