CARRIE’S STORY

This book contains the historical and emotional memories of my mother as she lived her life in the twentieth century in the Lancashire towns of Burnley and Lancaster. She wrote the story contained in this book towards the end of her life in handwritten form and it was lovingly transcribed for her by her much loved son David who wrote it out in neat handwriting. It tells the story of her parents lives as well as her own.

This book is an important part of my family’s historical memory. I also believe it is an important piece of social history recording as it does the memories of a difficult like in the North of England of one woman during the twentieth century.

HOME FROM HOLME

I first arrived in the South Lakeland village of Holme in June 2002. For many years I had dreamed of coming to live in a village like Holme – indeed Holme was my favourite of all the villages I had visited over many years exploring the rural areas around my home town of Lancaster. This book contains my memories of this South Lakeland village and its pub – the Smithy Inn. It is a tribute to the people of the village and the many colourful characters that inhabit it. There is something about the atmosphere of the village that attracted me to it and I discovered that many other newcomers to the village had similar feelings. Holme draws people to it like a magnet. They love it there and it is a real delight of a place.
