Bring back the Birdies.
All quiet here, lovely old bricks.....wonder how long they have been around....thank you Thomas....cheers!!
My Father worked here 1959 to 1964, looking after the greenhouses. I remember that the Head Gardner was a Mr. Campbell and that the place was always spotlessly clean, neat and tidy. Looks a little different now! We lived just down the road in Curfew House.
Shocking to see this area almost in near dereliction, not all that long ago it was a hive of activity along with the beauty of the greenhouses in all their fragrant tropical splendidness, hopefully ways can be found to get Haigh Hall back to how it once was.
Sorry,everyone,but I need help! My computer has been "out of whack" for a few days, and in dealing with my accumulated email over those days I accidentally deleted a note from Dennis Dickinson in New Zealand. I've been trying to reach him on message boards, but apparently not only have I forgotten my password, but seem to have a different email address. How can I remedy this? And, Dennis, if you are reading this,I apologise for the "Senior moment" which caused this!
Are these cottages so bad that they cannot be renovated and be rented out ?I am sure there would be a lot of takers.
They should give them to the Ainscough brothers and Dave Whelan then they could develop them into a modern useful building.
Aye and they would snatch them up in double quick time too Mick, then they would turn them into apartments and then sell them for huge profits, Dave Whelan is turning his office blocks in Manchester into apartments and the Ainscough's did the same with their property on Windermere along with a private jetty.
