Remember these brothers Margaret. Was one blonde with blue eyes (David); one dark with brown eyes (Terry) ? Chalk and cheese. If so, Terry was the first date that I sat on the back row of the Odeon with when I was about 13 ? Didn't work out though .. LOL.

Have been in Dyke Nook myself.

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.
hello i too lived in this house around the same time,i was sent there to spend some time there,due to the big family we had

I remember Terry and David Rigg..and yes David was tall and blonde, ...I just can't remember why I know them.. I also remember Keith Biddulph who worked at a butchers in Abbey Street just top of little Blackburn road....and also Ian Ridge...he helped out at Whitewell caterers, when I was there. also David Dimambro worked at Schofields Bakery..
amazing what names come back when memory is triggered!!

Amazing how we all link up on here in some way..
Have been doing some family ancestry for a friend and, coincidentally, her cousin married Terry and David's uncle. Met her recently, she has a wonderful memory and filled me in on some of the history of this family. She didn't know about Dyke Nook though.
