Re: Hyndburn Local History Society

It's tonight !!!!! Am surprised that nobody asked - Why a Jubilee Stout.? Not even Katex asked. Is her brilliance fading ? Do her wits need sharpening ?

Ahh, Bob. I get it!

You're getting a bottle of Jubilee Stout because you got the name wrong!

Consolation prize?

Re: Hyndburn Local History Society

Harold's one-hour presentation started in 1860s when the moors were closed by landowners who employed men to protect the shooting rights and prevent trespassing. There followed a mass trespass and neogotations with the owners to allow walking on footpaths. In January 1897, in the Queen's 60th Jubilee year, a letter to the Darwen News suggested the building of a tower. In September the first sod was cut, and in June the following the tower was opened. Cost 773. It is at a higher above-sea level than is
the Peel Tower, but 20ft lower. Harold went onto talk about the India Mill chimney.

Next meeting is on Thursday 2nd November, when Mike Rothwell is the speaker. He will be selling his latest book, an update of his 1979 book on Hyndburn's Industrial Heritage. So far as I am concerned, this is a 'must have' @ 12. It has been funded by the society. Mike knows more about the subject than anyone has ever known. Starts @ 7.30pm. finishes 9pm A small charge on the door for non-members- A yeara's membership ciosts 12/

The society is looking for new committee members. - if interested, ring the sec , David Climpson on 237229
