Born and bred there and played with the bowls club for many years

Do you have any comments?  

Loved looking at the pics especially the bowls club ones,
I remember fondly most of these players whose names and memories have stayed with me all my life. Sadly virtually all have passed away now and the bowls club has moved to a new home. Even after all these years I still regard Whitwell as my home, and that says everything about this lovely village.

Spent hours on this web with my brother who lives down in North Carolina. Searching for some past family history. Our parents are buried at St Lawrence Church but cannot find any information at all. We have been to the church yard to see if we could find the grave, but there is nothing.
My brother and I left Whitwell in early childhood to go and live with grand parents in Cheshire. We have very happy memories of summer holidays visiting with our Aunt and Uncle (SEATONS)on Thorpe Ave.
