Please note


“It’s almost nine years since I started the Haslingden Old and New Blog
and it’s been a project which is still dear to my heart and for sometime now
I have been hoping that someone else would join me at the helm of the blog
And so help to steer the blog going into the future with continuity and protection
of its valued reference source.

It’s been a great pleasure for me to invite Jackie Ramsbottom (Haslingden Roots)
to join me on this project and she has kindly accepted my invitation and so as from
today the blog is now under joint administration of both Jackie and myself. 
We do not anticipate any drastic changes and hope you will continue to support the blog 
just has you have over the past nine years.  Thank you”

A request for information from Michael Mullaney (13th Sept 2017)


Hi Bryan, 
I'm struggling with a problem which I wondered if you could assist me with. 
The council flats on left side of Church Street above where Frank Heaps chemist shop used to be and opposite the old Bird in Hand were built around 1958-60. 
They were I believe originally built with porches although some say not, but at sometime the porches were rebuilt for whatever reason. 
Are there any photographs of the block of 12 flats, 6 at ground level and 6 at first floor level as originally built? 
Is there anyone among your bloggers who recall the porches being rebuilt by Rossendale Borough Council? Possibly about 25 years ago. 
Any help most gratefully appreciated. 

Michael.

Ginnel from Blackburn Road (side of Black Bull Pub) and is used as a short cut into
Ratcliffe Street. In past years this would also have led through to the Pub stables which is
now Dave's garage.
Thanks to Jenni Coates for bringing this one to my attention and also thanks to Robert Wade (Wadey) who has been kind enough to photograph. Now included in the Ginnel/Alleyways and Snicket Blog
