I have followed this thread with great interest to see if anyone could shed some light on when the houses to the right of the Barn (it has always been known as that, The "Coach House " was a little nicety that Tom Mullhall had carved when he moved in there in the late 70s or early 80s)
All the houses to the right of the barn were demolished and then rebuilt at different times with the end one (Atarah's Picture) being built in 1934 and was the home of Mr Hinchcliffe, retired Headmaster of Peel Park School.

If you read post numb 5 you will see who lived in that house in the 1930's, and as I've said before, there are number of places in Accrington falsely labeled with date stones and other rubbish, The word Coach House can put another 20 grand on a property, which the gullible will fall for, it was never a coach house, who would the coach be for.
The chauffer for the owner of Bank House, Mr Crowe lived in that house, long before Hinchcliffe even went anywhere near Peel Park School, the garage was in the grounds of Bank House.

Re: coach house, ascot way (broad oak fold)

Nathen Retlaw, If you look at the old photo (not the Painting)
of those houses to the right of the Barn you will see that the house adjacent to the Barn is the usual design of four equally spaced windows.
But the Building that replaced it has a totally different configuration of windows, not equally spaced and not all the same size.
it also was finished at its southwest corner (Sandy Lane end) with Large Corner stones all the way to the top. this wasn't normally done in the middle of a row, and there are no stones keyed into the barn.
The outer property was rebuilt at a later date and not at the same time and is also not keyed in anywhere, front or back
The roof lines of the two houses are different with the 1934 one being several inches lower than the other. The 1934 house is built of smaller stones than the other and if you look at Atarah's Picture you will see that the very end, smaller propery, has been demolished and rebuilt 90 degrees to its original site to accomodate the road. The original tall chimney which is clearly seen standing several feet over the roof of the original property. has been rebuilt and is now visible by only a few inches from the front. and that is why there is a Plaque which says 1934 because that was when the rebuild of that property was completed.

Re: coach house, ascot way (broad oak fold)

We spent a very enjoyable few hours in Accrington reference library, on Tuesday, trying to make sense of our family timeline. One of our people was born at Broad Oak farm in 1942. The farm was part of the fold and from what we can gather, in addition to the farm, there were 3 or 4 other properties within the fold itself. The name Clark(e) is in the Burgess guides which ties in with our family. We have been down in Accrington for a few days and have taken the opportunity to explore other properties up Sandy Lane, which have family connections. If you witnessed a dodgy looking couple staring suspiciously at your house on Wednesday morning, we were not casing your property, honest!

Hi Joan, in your post you mentioned Marlene Newsham. She's my sister. You did visit Broad Oak Fold to see our grandma. I found an old photo of my grandma Newsham taken on the wishing Stone in Old Hill Park in 1934.
