There is so much to compile, and time is relatively short. Most of the changes that have happened across Anglezarke Moor occurred in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s, and whilst the history of these times was documented in the local press and in books published since, these records are out of print and in some cases only single physical copies exist. I intend to document all available evidence so that it isn’t lost forever. Thankfully, there is a lot of knowledge out there and I have been contacted by descendants of those who have lived on the moors in the past, and also by others who have explored and studied the area in depth. If you have any information to share then please post on any article’s page, or Contact Us – it’d be great to hear from you.

There are many unanswered questions, below are just a few – perhaps you can help? Or maybe there is something you would like adding to the list?

  • Where was Gir Nest Bullough, which is listed in the census records? Answered – this was Margery’s Place.
  • Who was Old Rachel?
  • Has anybody got all the old David Owen sketches?
