The lightning struck tree…

August 17, 2012 1 comment

My nana lived in Flass Terrace until she died in 2001, does anyone remember her? Celia Balderstone was her name, her husband was Sandy but I think he may have died before moving here.

My nana always used to tell me the story of when the huge tree near the bottom of Whitehouse Lane got struck by lightning, caught fire and fell across the road, blocking it. I’m guessing this would have been sometime in the 60′s/70’s?

My mam now lives in the house the contains the quite blackened and rotting stump that the tree used to be! Just interested to see if anyone can remember this happening.

Thanks, Matt

I am looking for any information about my Uncle James Ward maybe Shanks born 1928 at 25 White House Lane Ushaw Moor. Does any one know who lived at that address in 1928.?

I have enjoyed reading the memories of the hard but happy life.

I live in Canada and am trying to trace my family from afar. Any help would be appreciated.
