Triangle Mill Sisters

Did you know there was a hostel for 100 women mill workers at Stansfield Grange, Triangle for 50 years between 1920 and 1970? This was run by William Morris and Sons woollen mills to provide workers for their mills at Corporation Street, Sowerby Bridge and Stansfield Mill, Triangle.  Ruth Beazley of Mill Bank, is putting on an exhibition at SOWERBY BRIDGE LIBRARY from 17 SEPTEMBER UNTIL 30 OCTOBER about the women who lived in the hostel.

Winterburn Alive and Well and Going Accoustic!

With the latest news that 30 pubs per week are closing down in Britain we were right to be concerned that the Winterburn may be under threat with the departure of James and Becky in early July.  However, our concerns proved to be unfounded as we have seen a relatively smooth handover to Kevin and Sharon who have now got the place fully up and running again.  Once again there’s a full menu of delicious home cooked pub fayre and the welcome is as friendly as before.  In addition, rumours abound that there are some new ideas in the pipeline, the first of which is an acoustic Night on August 24th.

We are incredibly lucky to still have great pubs in our community, so if you have’nt been down to the Winterburn recently why not get down there and enjoy some live music on Sunday the 24th?

New Faces at the Winterburn

This week we bade farewell to James and Becky and welcomed Kevin and Sharon as ‘mine hosts’ at the Winterburn.  They tell us that very little will change in terms of the great hospitality we have come to expect over many years with walkers and dogs still very welcome!  There is already a new menu which is still full of familiar home cooked food that has proved so popular and Sharon says that this will be further developed over the coming weeks and months as they settle in.

Why not get down there to meet them if you have not already done so especially as this weekend looks like a scorcher!
