About Me

Like many Wiganers I was born at Billinge Hospital. Christened at St Stephens, I grew up in Ince, Millgate, Whelley and Pemberton. My Taylor (Astleys Farm) and Sharrock (Lindsay Terrace and Bark Hill) ancestors lived in Haigh, Aspull and Whelley and are all buried at St David's. My book ' A Wigan Childhood' has a lot in it about their lives between about 1870 and 1967.

After 38 years as a teacher and headmaster in England, Latin America, Africa and Asia I now live with my wife Val and our two dogs Boris and Biggles at our old farmhouse in the hills of Andalucía, southern Spain.
