Yvonne, I just visited the Aspull web site for the first time in a long time. I was glad to see that you were able to use my Dad's photos of the WWI memorial. Thanks for the photo credits.

For Ken Roocroft and son,
In 1819 my Gerrard ancestors were living in the Bent Houses, Aspull.
Me and a descendant from Tasmania found them in 2006.
Down a Bridle Track about 1,000 metres long.
There was only one standing, but the foundations of the other houses were visible in front of, and adjacent to the house still standing.
There were possibly 5 houses originally.
All inhabited as per the 1841 Census.

To Yvonne and Sandra Miller,
Hi, I used to live at Bent Houses. The ones that still remain are #s 1 & 2 Bent Houses, #1 The Taylor family lived ( now it is Billy Taylors scrap yard, now run by Billy Jnr). #2 was the home of the Parrs, Bert or Billy Parr and his mother. The other #s 4 to 6 were owned by my mother Ethel Roocroft in # 6, In # 5, Mr and Mrs Donnelly lived there for a long time and when they moved I renovated the house and stayed there for a few years. In #4 Kitty Simpkin lived with her brothers Peter and ???, she married Albert Clarke. I cant recall the name of the couple in # 4 I believe she was the sister of Albert Clarke.
The only thing that remains of # 6 Bent Houses is a stone post that was part of the side gate, this is posted on Wigan World in the streets section.

Some of my ancestors 'Gibson' lived in Aspull. Two H & J Gibson are on the war memorial and I believe another planted some trees within the village and was the school truant officer. As a child I was always told of my connections with Aspull and now I pass this on to my children and grandchildren. It is still a beautiful spot to visit on the times I visit Lancashire.
