GUESTBOOK


Apparently my grandfather Laurence Stead, (originally from Morley and the Printing Works then sent to Canada, in early 1900's) had a granddaughter who visited London in the early 1960's. We always thought I was the only granddaughter!!! This person would be in her 70's now and maybe my half sister or a cousin! I know it's a longshot but as an only child, this quest may have wonderful consequences. Thank you for any memories or leads.

GUESTBOOK


One of two famous neighbours was miner Nat Thewlis the weight lifter, a tiny but very strong man. In summer behind the British Legion he showed we young boys his medals and how to lift weights safely. He didn't make the 1936 Olympics but was very prominent in the sport. His wife was huge and he was so small. The other neighbour was miner Albert Woollin, who became Mayor of Morley. His wife baked lovely bread which she very generously gave to neighbours, I remember her flat cake with affection.

GUESTBOOK


My grandfather Harry Asquith worked at Topcliffe mine, he was injured and then worked as a screener. In the Red Wood near our shop Thirlmere Stores was an old mineshaft where we young boys lobbed stones over the parapet to hear them thundering down the shaft. The larger the stone the noisier it became. The reservoir was built about the time the Red Mine shaft was sunk and restricted mining activity, so it was never used and the owners applied unsuccessfully to the House of Lords for recompense.

GUESTBOOK


A huge thank you to Clive for giving a series of wonderful talks yesterday to our energetic (!) year 7s (11-12 year olds) about the history of Morley High School with some wonderful photos. I'm told that there was a lot of enthusiastic chatter afterwards! Many thanks, Kristy (Morley High Librarian)
