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.

May Clarks beer-off and Wortons Dairy, lovely home made ice-cream, were at least two shops on Back Street in the 1940/50s+ and I have a feeling there were more and do not forget the Croft that backed up to the shops on front street, that entrance is show

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?
