Re: DYKE NOOK, Whalley Road, Accrington

I lived at Dyke Nook from 1969 until 1977 ... my parents were Residential Social Workers for LCC and worked there until 1987 (?) when they retired.

I believe it was purchased from William Cocker in 1965 and I too have a copy of the sale information without an exact date.

I would love to have seen the house as a private residence. It had beautiful carved fireplaces, oak panelled walls and mullioned windows like the ones in Howarth Art Gallery, and even in the 1980's held echoes of its previous owners.

It was indeed a privelage to live there for a while. Nice to hear of the house again, and hopefully soon someone will restore it to its former glory.
