I came across this photo, its of Colin my brother, myself and cousin Maria. Although it  looks like the 1930s it was taken in the mid 1950s at 9 Helmshore Road near the Bay Horse pub. The houses were demolished in 1960 to make way for Cordingley's  petrol station

Chris Aspin writes 24th April 2017

I'm told that one of the morning papers last
week had a story about workmen at Holden Vale,
Haslingden, being alarmed by some supernatural
goings on. I wonder whether or not any of your
readers came across the report?

In one of my collections, I quoted scary stories
from staff who had worked at Holden Vale when it
was a restaurant and motel.

Houses or flats will be built on the site, which
began as a cotton mill before being known as the
Bleach Works.
