This book comprises the memories of more than fifty people who lived and worked in Leigh between 1914 and 1960. They have personally witnessed its transformation from a small fishing village into a bustling commuter town. However, here is the evidence that these now respectable ladies and gentlemen were, in fact, the children who roller skated down Church Hill, rode runaway donkeys, fell into Prittle Brook and flooded the headmistress's study. They are also the people who were wage earners at fourteen and air-raid wardens at twenty. They went to war for their country, answered the call for help at Dunkirk, and supported soldiers before D-Day. Individually, these stories are interesting; together they create a fascinating picture of a Leigh that has long gone.
