Dave Watson: My mother was born in 1922 to Nellie Hope, I think they lived in Hollins Lane where Nellie ran a baker's business. My mother told me that she could remember the mill workers in their clogs bringing basins to my grandmother to have pies/puddings baked in them for picking up later. My mother and her mother lived with my great grandparents, Arthur and Ann Hope, I assume this was in Hollins Lane. The last census address I have for Arthur and Ann is Cross Lane in 1911. Joan and Nellie left Marple around 1936 after both Arthur and Ann had died and followed one of Nellies sisters, Edith, to the south coast. My mum always looked back fondly on her beginnings in Marple and regretted they ever had to leave.
