Identity of Lake District bridge revealed



read with interest the Picture from the Past article on the Nostalgia page featuring one of Joseph Hardman's photographs of a bridge (Gazette, August 17, 'Whereabouts is this bridge?').

I can identify the bridge as the Rothay Bridge at Ambleside, which carries the A593.

It is an excellent photograph, although the site is overgrown now on both sides by trees.

NOSTALGIA: Butchers shops in Kendal in times gone by



Historian Arthur R. Nicholls recounts the history of butchers shops in Kendal

TOWARDS the top of Beast Banks at Kendal is a small triangular patch of grass. Although there is no evidence, it is thought that there was once an early settlement on the site where drovers, bringing their animals to market, pastured and watered them before continuing into the town.

By the 18th century it had become a place where animals were slaughtered and butchered.

The law of the time caused bulls to be baited. They were tethered to a ring in the ground and fierce dogs were made to attack them, causing the blood to flow freely through the body and improve the quality of the meat. Cooks do the same to steak today with a hammer.

New website reveals the history of Cumbria



Do you know an intriguing fact about Cumbria’s history?

Cumbria County History Trust (CCHT) and Lancaster University’s Regional Heritage Centre are asking members of the public to nominate interesting facts about Cumbria's past.

As part of the Victoria County History of Cumbria project, the two organisations have created a website that is a key resource bank for Cumbrian history. The website is now being revamped, and the front page will feature a ‘Did you know?’ section to showcase fascinating facts.

NOSTALGIA: Kendal obelisk marks 'The Glorious Revolution'



Historian Arthur R. Nicholls reveals why an obelisk was erected in Kendal in memory of ‘The Glorious Revolution’

HIGH up on Castle Howe, looking down on to Kendal, is the well-known memorial obelisk.

On a plaque attached to its side are the words “sacred to Liberty This obelisk was erected in the year 1788 in memory of the Revolution 1688.”

It refers to what was called “The Great Revolution”, but what was that event and why was it commemorated?

James II came to the throne in 1685 during a politically and religiously turbulent time. He was welcomed after the weak Charles II but ruled as a despot, claiming the Divine Right of Kings and to be above the law and Parliament.

When the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685 was crushed he acted cruelly against the rebels, turning many people against him, and there was much religious persecution.

NOSTALGIA: All the fun of the fair



Kendal Fair: Roger Bingham surveys one of South Lakeland's longest living links with the past.

'WILL the fair continue?' was asked during the controversy over the closure, in September, of Kendal's New Road car park.

The area, which until recently was never called a 'common', had been the site of the regular fun fair since it decamped in about 1850 from boggy Gooseholme to the waste land between the New Road, constructed in about 1819, and the River Kent.

To be fair, the Fairs survival had not been threatened, officially - because it couldn't be.

Is this one of the world's first selfies?



A photo discovered by a Whitehaven man at the back of an old family album features in a new book of classic images.

It's believed to be one of the world's first 'selfies' and was taken in 1926 by Arnold Hogg.

His grandson, Alan Cleaver, of Church Street, Whitehaven, shared the picture on Facebook and brought it to wider attention.

It's now been featured in 1001 Photographs You Must See Before You Die by award-winning photo editor Paul Lowe.

Alan, 58, said: "My grandfather died in 1972 but would have been chuffed the recognition his humorous snap has received – though I suspect his wife, Helen, would have been less pleased!

Local historians piece together the fascinating history of Kendal's old yards



TWO local historians have pieced together the story of Kendal's once-bustling yards for the first time.

From Collin Croft to Windmill Yard, New Shambles to Golden Chair Yard, their intriguing names and the townsfolk who lived and worked in these crowded, noisy lanes have been carefully researched by Trevor Hughes and Arthur Nicholls, two stalwarts of Kendal Civic Society.

In their new book, The Yards of Kendal, they expand on detective work by the late Dr John Satchell, society chairman, who was fascinated by these 120-or-so crofts and ginnels, and whose handwritten notes were passed on to Mr Nicholls after his death.

New book tells story of Stan Laurel's father

MUCH has been written about the Ulverston-born comic Stan Laurel, who rose to international fame as one half of the Laurel and Hardy film partnership, but now a new book is about to reveal the story of the man who was arguably Stan's greatest inspiration - his father.

Arthur Jefferson. Man of the Theatre and Father of Stan Laurel, out next week, tells of a flamboyant, multi-talented theatrical figure whose own contribution to the world of entertainment was overshadowed by his son's global fame.

The book, by Laurel devotee Dr Danny Lawrence, is billed as "a powerful human-interest story set against the background of the major changes in the entertainment industry over a century".

Arthur, who began his acting career as a member of a touring company based at the Theatre Royal in Whitehaven, married Madge Metcalfe from Ulverston in 1884.

Stan was born in Argyle Street on June 16,1890, and lived there with his maternal grandparents until his family settled in the north-east in 1895.

Business as usual as renovation begins in Alston
23 October 2017


Alston Wholefoods on Front Street

ANOTHER historic building in Alston is set to undergo refurbishment as part of a £1.3m heritage project.

The Alston Moor Partnership's Townscape Heritage Scheme was launched last year with finance from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Eden District Council, and Alston Moor Parish Council, So far three properties have benefited from the scheme, including the Victorian Ryder House, on Front Street, which was restored to its former glory 12 months ago.

Now the initiative is turning its attention to the Alston Wholefoods shop, also on Front Street, which is a grocery and delicatessen. Scaffolding will go up as part of a programme which will include masonry and roof repairs, while traditional sash windows will be reinstated. Re-pointing in lime mortar will also be carried out as part of the project at the shop, which will be wrapped up in hessian at times to protect the mortar against winter frosts.

Alston Wholefoods will remain open throughout the scheme seven days per week. The business runs as a workers co-operative, which currently has 10 members. One of the members, Madeleine Parkyn, said: "We are very happy that our shop is getting a much-needed facelift. Alston Wholefoods will be open seven days a week, as usual, so don't be deterred by the scaffolding. We hope that everyone will continue to enjoy shopping here during this necessary work."

Cumbria winning fight to protect its historic sites




Cumbria winning fight to protect its historic sites

Appleby town centre

Fewer Cumbrian heritage sites feature on the "at risk" register than last year - with Historic England saying they are working hard to protect even more areas.

The organisation has today released its list of sites which appear on their Heritage at Risk Register in the north west of England, giving a snapshot of the condition of some of the region’s most important historic buildings, sites, monuments and places.

In the north west, 30 sites have been removed from the register because their futures have been secured, while 25 sites have been added because of concerns about their condition – the majority of these, a total of 17, are places of worship.

Medieval ring found in Cumbria classified as 'treasure'



A MEDIEVAL ring found in a field has been categorised as treasure at an inquest in Kendal.

The medieval gold finger ring found at Waitby, near Kirkby Stephen, was found by a metal detectorist in a well-preserved condition.

The small, plain band is decorated with a stepped and bevelled rectangular gold bezel mounted with a purple stone, possibly amethyst.

It is known to be dated from some time within the 13th and 14th centuries, the inquest heard.

Commenting on the ring in the artefact's notes, archaeologist Dr Dot Boughton wrote: "Similar medieval gold rings are recorded on the database, for example from Tolleshunt Major in Essex, Kexby in North Yorkshire and Chester.
