Going for a Walk

  My mother often looked back with nostalgia to the good old days before   television when people enjoyed the simple pleasure of going for a walk. Often, on a nice summer evening after chapel, a whole group of friends would go out for a walk together.

Here we have a group of people from Digmoor Chapel. I’m sorry I do not know all the names.

One thought on “Going for a Walk

  1. No 11 on going for a walk is my Auntie, Hilda Birch.
    Her family lived in the row of stone houses, on Ormskirk Road, opposite Chequer Lane.

    Regards Christine Bruce (nee Birch)
