Ryhill and havercroft

History Pages

When I  browsed the net and found a Chronology for the nearby village of Walton, I showed it to my wife and bemoaned the fact that there was no such document for Ryhill.

My wife gave me the sort of advice one would expect from a Ryhill lass, born in Lafflands Lane and brought up in the village - she said,

"Well don't just sit there moaning about it - write one!"

So I have!

If you can add to these chronologies by giving me dates (particularly more recent ones) important to the villages then I will be pleased to up date the document. I am particularly interested in knowing when various organisations, - band, cricket club, etc., were set up.

Please feel free to e-mail me with your comments.
