BARNOLDSWICK IS A SMALL EX- MILL TOWN ON THE LANCASHIRE/ YORKSHIRE BORDER IN NORTHERN ENGLAND. I SAY EX MILL TOWN, AS COTTON WEAVING WAS THE MAIN INDUSTRY UP UNTILL THE LATE FIFTIES. SINCE THE DECLINE OF COTTON, THE TOWNS INDUSTRY HAS DIVERSIFIED, INTO ENGINEERING, BEDMAKING, PRINTING, ETC, THE LARGEST EMPLOYER BEING ROLLS-ROYCE AERO WORKS. THE TOWN HAS A POPULATION OF ABOUT 12,000 INHABITANTS, WHO ARE "BARLICKERS" THE TOWN LIES ON THE EDGE OF THE TROUGH OF BOLLAND, AND THE YORKSHIRE DALES, BOTH AREAS ARE POPULAR TOURIST SPOTS, AND WELL WORTH A VISIT, AND EXTREMELY POULAR WITH THE HIKING FRATERNITY, ESPECIALLY THE DALES AREA, WHICH HAS SOME WONDERFUL MOORLAND, AND DALES WALKS..... THE TOWN DATES BACK TO SAXON TIMES, AND WAS SETTLED BY A CHAP CALLE BERNULF, HENCE BERNULFS WICK, WICK MEANING VILLAGE, THE CHURCH IS SOME NINE HUNDRED YEARS OLD, SO THERE IS PLENTY OF HISTORY ABOUT THE PLACE, A GREAT LITTLE PLACE TO LIVE.. AND DIE OF COURSE

Gus, on the internet typing in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS is generally considered to be SHOUTING and is, on the whole, unwelcome. Thanks for the pics and info though. Did you take these yourself?

GUS BRENNAN: 7th Jun 2006 - 19:57 GMT

hi jamie, yes i know that capital letters are considered to be shouting, i just can`t fathom this one out, internet manners i suppose.i honestly thought that cap. letters would be clearer and easier to read, so for you i will type in a normal manner. no i did not take the pictures, and your welcome to any info. i can supply

i love these pic's. very interesting and nice shots. but who is 'jack' above who was typing in caps, that was not me. if there is another jack posting comments should we put a number after our name.

GUS BRENNAN: 20th Jun 2006 - 16:52 GMT

thanks for your comments jack, as for the other jack, i have not got a clue who he is ,but, does it matter, after all typing anything in caps, is hardly, wait for it, a CAPITAL OFFENCE, i really can`t see what differance it makes, as long as it is not offensive, or abusive, and we can all read and understand what has been typed. or are we fast becoming intrnet typing snobs, god forbid. anyway keep looking, as i will be posting more of bar`lick photo`s, take care gus

I was asked by John Stanley (Stan the man)if i could put this photo on the Barnoldswick site with the hope that someone out there could shed some light on it.
It as come from his late father-in-laws estate, Mr. James McKechnie, Kerris and Heather's father.
We gather that it's Townhead, but the little chap with the ice cream is an unknown and so is the van. Any comments would be very much appreciated.
All the best, Paul.image 15733

In a nostalgic moment for roots I discovered your great web site. My family came to Barlick in 1939 with the Rover company. I went to Gisburn Road school till 1950. I wrote a biography of my mother and our life in Barlick from 39-60 and it went into the local public library. Wondered if it was still there? Love to hear from anyone I went to school with. I live in Vancouver, Canada. My e-mail: Major9th@energensia. com

Easy does it for me!You are putting me under too much pressure and I then back off.I understand where you are at and I am picking up your pain right now.
I am there myself frequently, but one has to deal with it by chatting and sharing ones feelings.Solving things on an intimate level is not the solution.
You are hurting at the moment- I am here for you on other levels for now...

What a neat looking little wick you have. I chanced apon your site researching Barnoldswick after reading mention of it in Development of Aircraft Engines by Robert Schlaifer. I, too, am in Florida. I would like to put Barnoldswick on a trip agenda, after I get to the Museum of Science and Industry in Kensington. Thanks for the pics.

Pat Kenny: 14th Dec 2007 - 15:49 GMT

I grew up in Barlick. Lived at 24 Avon Drive until 1974 when the family emigrated to Canada. Most of my early memories involve ordinary things like going to Redmans for bacon on a Saturday morning with Mum or going to the pictures and anticipating the choc ice waiting for me at half time (saw my first Elvis pic there...) Playing at Vic Park and picnics at Ghyll (spelling?? yikes!)church hold extra special memories. I think that it's true....Barlick is in the blood. If anyone knows any of my relatives please post a note or two, love to hear any news. Here's the anticpated yet dreary (to those of you who don't recognise any of the names) list: Paul Kenny and family (Uncle) Michael Kenny (Uncle), Julie Hargreaves (friend from Skipton Girls High School) Jill P ??? (flaming red hair, great sense of humour). Well, I won't go...Oppps, too late!
Thanks for the opportunity

Hi Pat Kenny in Canada
Someone told me about your posting and wondered if the Red Head was me - yes it is. We went to Gisburn Road School and then onto the High School. I can remember you emigrating to Canada. I'm still in Barlick but Julie moved away many years ago. I understand that she is living in Edinburgh. Glad to hear that you are well and still enjoying fond memories of Barlick. Take care

Hi Everyone,
I am researching the Majestic Ballroom and Cinema and was wondering if anyone has any pictures of this building that they would be kind enough to let me have a look at - ideally taken inside, but outside shots are welcome too - and the older the better !
I can be contacted on 07967 635143
Or email at nigelhampson@hotmail.com
Hope someone can help and thank everyone.

I happened to be lucky enough as to live in Barlick in 1957. Revisited in 1962 and 1964 and in 1979: this time with my wife and children. The last time I was there was a sad one in 1985?
My friends there were Edith and Harold Watson, and Doris and George Watson. They owned a car business Watsons Bros. Computers have never been my trade, but now, since I retired I find Internet exciting. Anyway I was very excited when I came across your web page that brought back to me so many sweet memories. I´ll browse my archives and find some photos and details. It will a pleasure to them over. As soon as I learn how to do it. Please acknowledge receipt as soon as possible. Warmest regards to all the Barlickers who coached me to dance in the
Majestic and for Barlicks hospitality in general.

Query for Alberto C. Juarez R.
Did the George Watson you mentioned in your post, ever own a small de Havilland Puss Moth aeroplane, pre war?

Hi Gus,Enjoyed a trip down memory lane.Recognised Geoff Peacock in the Saracens group
think he married my best friend from The Sec. Modern days. Haven't managed to track her down. She was Ann Livesey from Bolland Street. Sad the Majestic is no more - great groups seen there in the early 6o's.

I'm hoping to be in your beautiful, wee town in early June of 2012 for the Commonwealth and European Barlick Bellman Competition. Word is travelling and I was just in touch with a Town Crier in Anacortes, Washington State, on America's Pacific coast - he may be there also. I am the Town Crier for the Township of Rideau Lakes in Ontario, Canada.

Anyone remember Ivan sharpies. Would luv pics. He grew up in barlick. Lived in Colne a while then barlick again. Liked the pubs. Add afew brothers n sisters.

Lesley: 2nd Nov 2012 - 23:05 GMT

That last note should have said SHARPLES. He was from Barlick. Like I said, liked a drink. He,d choke when he lit his pipe, and liked to wear a hat. No good pics of him, so wondered if anyone had any. He died a few years ago.

I am applying for a job in Barnoldswick, coming from Birmingham. Will I like it? I want peace and quiet and a friendly village with lots of countryside and a safe place for my daughter to grow up in. It looks great - is it worth the move?

Sheena P.: 15th Mar 2013 - 23:08 GMT

Its a lovely place to live. Quiet and very friendly. I grew up there. The schools are good and the countryside is wonderful. I love going back to visit, I miss it loads. A great place to live. And lots of great places nearby to visit too!

Thanks Sheena, it's a big step but it sounds wonderful! I'm going to go for it, wish me luck!

Sheena P.: Good Luck!!
