Gosh, I hadn’t realised how long it’s been since I last posted!
Over the last week or so I’ve been addicted to a local quiz page on Facebook. It’s involved a lot of research, and finding out things I didn’t know. Seeing lots of old photos and also starting to notice the architecture of places still standing. It’s also involved going off at tangents and learning about people and events. For instance, I’ve only just realised what tiny hands Winston Churchill had, after seeing a photo of a post war visit to Accrington.
Also there is a museum which has been set up in the market hall by volunteers. Well done to them for the effort, but the artifacts do seem to be very generic. Basically it could be in any northern town.
Surely with the wealth of industrial (and otherwise) history in the town of Accrington, we could come up with something more specific?
