Barlows Fold which was on Helmshore Road next to the Bay Horse Pub, where the garage (ex Cordingley's) is nowadays - (Photo: taken from the book "Haslingden" Page 17 published in 1979).


ITS IN REGARDS TO THE PROPERTIES WHICH WERE DEMOLISHED to make room for the late Cordingley's Petrol Station which is on Helmshore Road close to the Bay Horse Pub. 

Ray Campbell and his family lived at No.9 Helmshore Road and he remembers:
"At the front was a square open space we used to call the "FOLD" and in the centre there was a dip, which I presumed was a former well.

Sue Rawcliffe who was born at No.5 Helmshore Road, seems to remember the Cottages could well have been called BARLOWS FOLD and she recalls they had a cobbled courtyard to the front.

It would be great if we could get more information about these old long gone properties.

I have been given the old 8mm films made by the late Harry Pollard thanks to Frank and Julie Spencer. It is their wishes that Harry’s work be offered to the public and made available to all through the Haslingden Old and New Blogsite.
I will hopefully be viewing them over the coming weeks and selecting sections which will hopefully be OK for digital transfer and then seeking advice on this from friends.
I am told the films will include “Walking Days” and also some of “Ken Barlow (William Roache) at a local Railway event”.  Once I have gone through them I will list the content subjects on the blog.
So let’s look forward to these in the near future.  I will then offer a direct link from the Google Drive platform to the Haslingden Old and New Site, and the link will also be extended and made available simultaneously  to Jackie’s Haslingden Roots facebook site

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.
