I was in Aspull post office yesterday at about 1pm and the woman behind the counter served two customers slowly while she was on her mobile.
And it was a business call, because the call ended with bye love bye love

Did the double-fronted red-brick house at the right of the photo used to be The Running Horses pub, or was it further along?


Comment by Veronica on 18th April 2018 at 11:36
Irene those red bricked houses were next door to the Running Horses. There are apartments now where the pub was - which you can just see. A lady who lived in one of those houses used to sing in the pub and also in the Hare and Hounds years and years ago! Can't remember her name.


Comment by Gary on 18th April 2018 at 11:56
Veronica - I think the same lady appeared once in a very early 1960s television quiz show. My dad knew her as a singer in the Hare & Hounds. Cannot bring her name to mind, but my uncle Bill Brindle said at the time she lived by the Running Horses.

Intriguing, Veronica and Gary. Hope someone can come up with the lady’s name. I like the way you walk from the shade into the sun on this photo; in summer it would make you appreciate the warmth of the sun on your shoulders as you leave the shade.t

Nice photo Ron, A motley row of houses mainly pastel shades, there is no one sitting on your front wall.
Keep 'em coming.


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 18th April 2018 at 21:44
One of the houses, I think it's the one painted pale yellow, had the front covered with a thick layer of some kind of insulation material last year. This would explain why the front of the house appears to project further than the others, and why the window recesses appear deeper. I don't know if this process is common, but it's certainly the first time that I've ever seen it done. I would be interested to learn how effective the process has been in terms of thermal retention.

I was talking to a woman dog walker today near to the curvy douglas valley way, she told me who had made it and how nice it was of this gentleman to put in the concrete all the dogs names who are now waggling there tails in doggy heaven
She said you wasnt so well, so I hope you get well soon.
