butchers shop in huncoat

hello all, It's been a while since I posted anything on Accy Web but I am seeking a little information.
Does anyone remember a butchers shop situated on Station Road in the middle of the first row of terraced houses above the Railway pub pre 1960 ?

I have a vague recollection that it belonged to a chap called Billy Grimes but no one that I have talked to in the village can confirm that, although some recall the name.

Many thanks for any info on the subject.

P.S. I also recollect my father saying that a "Billy Grimes", used to live in an old stone built cottage by the canal above Sykeside Wood in Altham.

Re: butchers shop in huncoat

Plunge is correct about Ormerod Clegg having the butchers on that block and also one in Hapton. I remember him in Hapton at bottom of Castle Street. He had been there years as my mum served her time baking at a shop in Castle Street in the early 30s and she used to go to his shop for the meat for the pies. He must have had it 20 odd years at least. I think he lived in Manchester Road Hapton at one time too.

Re: butchers shop in huncoat

Oh you would be surprised Bob how many shops there were in villages years ago. There were around 20 shops in Hapton when I was a child and there were definitely 2 butchers.
Huncoat had more shops than you would imagine too. It even had a bank !

After reserching,(fancy name for looking up), the bank in Huncoat, I think it may have been Huncoat Bank as shown on the old O/S maps, the name is very little used now but the War Memorial stands on land off Burnley Lane known as Huncoat Bank, opposite where Huncoat (Old Hall) once stood.

Your's Taddy.
