The Old Blacksmiths and Stables
I don't know how of the blacksmiths is but the cottage next door is being turned into a cafe. Another old cottage lost. There is already a cafe in the village!
Mick, the other day we were talking on album, about John Pit and the locos and Cliff Moss, this looks like the small row of stone houses where he lived.
Ken I wrote this on Album the only Cliff I know who lived there and his dad cut hair in a shed was Cliff Foster his dad was Tom and mother was Lily
Cliff married a miss Blackburn who used to teach at St Maries
In September 1947 a child was born in the old blacksmiths stable and the parents Alice and Joseph name their child Mick.
Who's Cliff Moss Ken R ?
Do you mean Cliff Foster ? he lived in one of them cottages.
Spot on Mick, Cliff Foster it was. Good footballer was Cliff, i worked with him for quite a while. He played for Southport around 1952.
Is he the same Cliff Foster that worked as a fitter at the infirmary
Yes that will be him, i worked with him in an engineering workshop in Leigh. The lad who owns, or owned this cottage worked in the same workshop at the same time.
Cyril did the Cliff Foster who worked at the Hospital as a fitter have a dad called Tom who used to cut hair in his shed
Sorry for previous post on Cliff moss but I always thought they were one of the same moss/foster it was his dad who cut hair int shed cos he did mine a time or two when I visited his house with my nan who was his auntie
I don't know Mick, and he can't be asked as he sadly died with asbestosis, quite a few years ago now, no idea if his wife or son is still living on Silverdale.
