Hi myself and my girlfriend are now proud owners of a house in Arnold. Does anyone have any old photos of Furlong Avenue? I know it might be a long shot. Thanks

I was instrumental in the setting up of Arnold Local History Society along with members of ALAF. It gives me great pleasure to the group thriving. Well done.

why are all the shops on Front Street and not on High Street? in other towns the main shops are always on High Street.

High street was orginaly call back street and was the entrance to the fields from the farms on Front street. It dates from the Iron age.

My uncle tells me that back in the late 1950's, the fish and chip shop opposite the Greyhound pub, was called Annie Dalby's Fishshop. Does anyone remember this?

Great website !! My grandfather, Harold Hopewell, was the licensee at the Druids Tavern on High Street. Does anyone know of his brother William Ambrose b 1889 ?

My Grandmother was a Holt, and they lived in Holt's Row, which does not exist any more. I remember it, which was opposite the old library site on Front Street.

I would really like to study these pictures better but there's no way of pausing the video. Can the stills be put on here please?
