  1. HI. Just wondered if you have any record of 1901 census for stormy corner/ the beehive and berry street. does any one have another photo of the beehive pub other than the one on your site as it is taken from quite a distance away. many thanks.

  2. Hello Cliff, trying to find out what year the beehive pub was built also who lived there i believe my gt/gt g/dad owned it sometime before 1900 and perhaps later by his son, my auntie used to have the beehive about 1958-1961, my gt/gt/ gdad also lived at rose place which was down the r/hand (dirt track) side of the pub about 1870 family name is houghton, also still trying to get a full on photo of the beehive if possable my sister also worked there for my auntie about 1959 (margaret) thanks john.ps. connections to my family are glover & webster (shoe maker)

  3. Hi Cliff don’t no who you are but we lived in moss lane stormy corner I remember auntie Annie Houghton having the bee hive. I have a picture of my dad as a little boy stood on a chair upside uncle Charlie’s cliff repairs shop ,miss stormy corner very much .

  4. I remember Arthur Houghton from Stormy, lived down one of those little dirt roads same side as DRAPERS shop.
    Think he had a sister Ruth, anyone know of his
    Also Kenny Rawsthorne, never seen him Either.

  5. Hi Dave, Arthur Houghton turned up in the Prince Albert pub in WEsthead last year and we chatted for quite a while. He now lives in Ormskirk.


  6. Has anyone got any info about the history of rose farm, rainford road, bickerstaffe?
