In Memory Lane we take a look back at life in the Valley from years gone by, from events, to places and
The first pictures were sent into us by Graham Whitehead and shows a fire at the former Middle
Gate Farm in Loveclough in 1978.
The farm was eventually transformed into what is now the Abbey Croft Nursing Home after being
altered and extended.
The second photograph was sent in by Rita Walker and shows the class from
Bacup St Mary’s School from 1973-1974.
The final photograph comes from Peter Fisher and shows the class of Lumb Church of England School from around 1925.
If you recognise anyone in these pictures, get in touch with the news desk.
Many thanks to all our Nostalgia contributors and to Peter Fisher.
