Don't suppose you remember that tenner you borrowed in 1972 either, do you

We were down in Accrington for the weekend and had a wander up Avenue Parade, to Peel park. The story I heard was that avenue parade was built as an avenue for the Peel's to get to St James Church but if that is the case, where would they be coming from?

I did a search on Google for this information but Google appears more interested in promoting its advertisers, these days, instead of providing the requested facts. For some reason, when requesting a street's history, Google thinks you want to buy a house there.

You rotten liar, its thee as owes me a tenner.
Avenue Parade was originally Peels private road to St James Church, as was Peel St., and the area up top of Ave Pde is refered to as Peel Park, Peel House wasn't actually in Ave Pde, it was in the Essex St area, there were also gates at bottom of Ave Pde, and a lodge house for the gate keeper.
I seem to remember Atarah Hindle has photos of Peels House, and they have been on here before, or Hyndburn Chat in the past..
And now thats 20 quid you owe me.
Do they still have coach trips to Morecambe to watch the traffic light change, seem to remember a big toddoo when one ot bulbs blew & neded changing.

Re: Rutland Street

There is a photo of Accrington House which was the home of the Peels in the Heritage and History section dated 26/9/2011, not sure of the way to link that post to this reply.

Re: Rutland Street

By the time Rutland St was built, the Peels had sold most of the land along Blackburn Rd from the Grammar School to Church to Frederick Steiner, who had also bought their house in Church bottom of Dill Hall Lane.

You obviously haven't been to Morecambe for a while, the latest attraction is located at the Entrance to Happy Mount Park where a number of retired firemen can be seen trying to work out if they are going in or leaving.

Re: Rutland Street

The shiny arch at the entrance to Peel Park looked very nice in the sunshine, were the carvings on the pillars to celebrate the millennium or something else?

We didn't do the climb up onto the Coppice as we were limited for time. Last time we were up there, much of the view was obscured by trees, have they left clearings or is it all masked by trees?

Re: Rutland Street

Great photo

Thanks, it is a few years since I have been up there but good to know that the climb is worth the effort. We are down there again, in a few days time, so may get the time to revisit the playground of my youth.

No I haven't been to Mor E Cambe since 1957, I did 3 months there, for at that time it was the training center. As for the ex fire lads they are just carrying on the tradition, all firemen are great practical jokers, and they are just enjoying them selves winding you lot up, I used to be a on the executive committee of FFBPJA
Fellow of the Fire Brigade Practical Jokers Association.
You have to be crazy to do some of the jobs we did.
And stop trying to weasel out on that 20 quid you still owe me
