Peel Hall is up a "dirt track" off Holt street (near RoseBridge High school.) It had lots of land behind it which ran alongside the canal... but now, its been built on.

l also knew the Poulsons that lived here in the 80s-90s. My friend was their youngest child James. We used to play in and all around this house and it is an amazing place to spend your summer holidays away from school. The rooms seem to never end so hide'n'seek would last for ages. For me this was 25/30 years ago and l've now moved from the area. So this picture is very nice to see a forgotten memory.

I was looking up Peel Hall, doing family history research. My great great grandmother died there in 1916 at the age of 85. She was Alice Howard, nee Shepherd, born at Haigh and in later years was a farmer at Lowton and Abram. On the 1911 Census she was living with her married daughter Hannah Rosbottom whose husband was described as a farmer and coal dealer at Peel Hall Farm, Ince. She is buried along with her husband in the family grave at St. David's Haigh. It is great to be able to see a picture of this house, thanks.
