    An interesting document showing socio-demographic evomution in the village.
    Memories of my former days in the village, and its people. Could this be married to the
    photo archive to give an extra dimension?

    It might be worthwhile investigating making something similar to the Discover Maps (see website) for Haslingfield given its history etc.

    Best Wishes

    Hi Phil
    The icons for the Jolly Brewers pub and Carpenters Arms pub need to be swapped.
    The Carpenters Arms was on Church Street and the Jolly Brewers on Barton Road. I was looking at 1955 but applies for all years. My father-in-law, Basil Patman (who lived in Haslingfield for most of his life) was a regular at the Carpenters Arms and when it closed and became a house he moved into it! I can remember bowls being played on the bowling green at the Jolly Brewers pub in the early 1980’s.

    Fixed the location of the Cobbler’s Shop, which is now to the left (west) of The Marquis of Grandby. Thanks for the feedback on Sunday!
