how come you went to school i n Lymm, also intrigued about the ferry in Cadishead and where it went to

I think you could get a ferry between partington and cadishead years ago going back to the 80s

We are all lying in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

I am sure I remember me and my cousin getting the ferry from Partington to Cadishead as teenagers so we could go to the pubs, couldnt in Partington as no one would serve us as my cousins dad was know ot to many there. It would be in the 80s

Thanks Celeste cant see any images on there

Talking of old schools though cannot find any pics of my old one at Urmston which was St Clements can find pics of the church, I think that the school was knocked down after we moved out of Urmston not sure to be honest

No problem, I used the ferry myself from Partington to Irlam around 1980-83, the photo above was found at a car boot sale.
