Flooding at Coronation Street,
Photo kindly shared to us by Lynda Batty
"Mr Madens shirt left out to dry during the unexpected floods in 1964

Many residents never returned to their houses. The height of the water and the mud left behind with its horrible smell was just too much.I also remember Grane Rd turning into a river as the hailstones blocked the drains and the level of water rose. We stood in front of the shop brushing the water away to prevent it getting in! It was very scary. We were very fortunate that the shop wasn’t affected but felt very sorry for the people in the Coronation St and Every St houses who were.

Plane Crash, Helmshore 1933
 Photo: Kindly shared to us by Gary Barnes

(Further information kindly added by Chris Aspin on 4th Jan 2020)
"It came down at Irongate on January 31, 1933, a few
hours before I was born. It was flying from
Scotland to Manchester, but ran short of fuel and
made a forced landing. The pilot and his
passenger were unhurt, but in coming
down the plane struck a cable which supplied
the huge poultry farm run by the Rodwells. Big losses
were incurred.. 
Best wishes, 

Chris
