Tawd Bridge Kids

Here are some photos from Mam’s camera. It’s good that she conveniently put the date on the border!

At the door of our house at Tawd Bridge, my brother Harold, my friend Sheila and I with our long suffering cat, Timothy.


Sheila lived next-door-but-one and was my best friend from the time we first started at Digmoor school. What a lot of childhood adventures we shared!


I was very sorry to hear that Sheila had recently passed away. I send my greetings, sympathy and best wishes to any of her family and friends who may read this.

  1. Hi Bernard, as a child I lived at 462 Ormskirk Road. It was the last row of houses, and we were 4 doors up from the Tawd Bridge pub.
    My friend was Sheila Bennett, daughter of Tom and Louie Bennett. They lived next door but one, second house from the pub. The Bennetts were related to the Ashcrofts who lived a bit further up the road. Lizzie Ashcroft was Tom Bennett’s sister.
