Terry,
Not sure what my reputation is. That booklet was from the perspective of an amateur local historian. I don't have any particular knowledge of archaeology, but happy to correspond.

I thought it might be interesting to introduce a new thread featuring photos that I have been unable to identify.
It is possible that some of the buildings may still exist, but someone has definitely “gone and forgotten” to write on what each photo represents.

If you think you know where one was taken, please try to confirm that you are right, otherwise I might have to spend some time checking out wild guesses.

The first is a photo of a church, which was among some of the Blackpool area. Although it might be expected to have been taken in the Fylde, it may be somewhere else.
I haven’t seen a lych gate identical to the one in the photo. Unexpectedly, for an Edwardian rural scene, the old gentleman on it is black.

That looks like the number 3 pub on Deveonshire Road...I could be mistaken but it looks like it.

Just to make things clear, the No. 3 is just off the bottom of No. 4, which shows the No. 4, but No. 2 is not the No. 3.

For anyone unfamiliar with the Blackpool area, on the road out of the town to the east (Church Street and then Newton Drive) are pubs called the Number 3 and the Number 4. Unfortunately, the Number 3 was renamed “The Crown” recently – so much for tradition!

Questions naturally arise concerning the locations of numbers one and two, and opinions are often given in pubs themselves. I will open a separate thread about this matter, which has long been the subject of debate.

Here is photo no 10. However, I did manage to work out where it was taken just before putting it on. At least I will be able to supply the answer if no one else gets it.

That was quick! Yes, no 10 is the Rose & Crown at Much Hoole, south west of Preston on the Liverpool Road. Albert Pierrepoint, the country’s last hangman, took it some time after he retired.

I don’t hold out much hope for finding this one, no 11. It was almost certainly taken in the Fylde.

That looks alot like the old Black Smiths place on lancaster rd, where the Wyre Arc group did a dig a few years ago. I know there is a thread on here about it.

John,
I did look for the thread, but couldn't find a cottage like it.

The path to the cottage seems to be slightly uphill, which would probably eliminate most places on Lancaster Road. I have a feeling that it is somewhere in the middle of the Fylde.

Hi fyldecoaster,

I thought it might be Paul Bradshaws house on Lancaster road where we did a dig a few years back.

I still don’t know whereabouts on Lancaster Road that is. However, here is number 12, a farmhouse that looks like so many others, but each is subtly different.

Ted, there are some similarities between this building and that of Warren Farm (West) in Fleetwood (taken, I think, just before it was demolished)...similar rendering and similar small pane windows. I'm surethis one isn't Warren Farm, but it must have a similar date...early 19th Century?
