Here is a photo of Arden Hall, will help you visit the site if you like when you come over.

My memories of Arden Hall are a big apple tree, big red juicy apples, on the side facing the lane up from Plantation Street and a nuisance of a dog - late '40s

I so know that feeling! I have been tracking down a portrait that was sold at an auction (Hartshorne) of my ggg uncle. Auction house does not even have a catalogue!

Would the library have photos of the other family homes - Broad Oak and Oakenshaw?

Accrington Library will have all you could hope for, and more! Honest! :-)

To Hargreavesconnection. This is the type of information you can find in local churches. Not sure if this particular Hargreaves connects to you, but you will enjoy searching in the church I am sure (this is in St James, Accrington)
