1. PHOTO GALLERY
1.1 Families celebrating Queen Elizabeth's Coronation inside High Usworth's Tithe Barn. Also a close-up of the outside.
1.2 The 88 kids who left High Usworth School in the summer of 1967. [Link goes to Schools: High Usworth.]
1.3 Map showing the location of Chartershaugh Wesleyan Methodist Chapel - NOT the Primitive Methodist Chapel.
1.4 Press cutting: Washington Development Corporation's Ladies' Swimming Team of 1976. All names included.
1.5 Map and picture of Chartershaugh Primitive Methodist Chapel. Yes, Chartershaugh had two Methodist Chapels!
2. ARTICLES, SELECTIONS, MAPS ETC.
2.1 There were six 'Picture Houses' (that I know of) within reasonable walking distance of Washington Village Green.
2.2 Press cutting: A list of Landlords / Ladies at the Cross Keys Inn, from 1827 to 1995. Researched by Ron Lawson.
2.3 I've replaced three rather blurry original images with better quality versions and compared them to updated photos.
You'll find these image-pairs in a new 'Then & Now' collection, with previously posted images of Wash Station Rd.
There'll be another addition next weekend - Susan Peareth's School. Where was that?
