    What great photographs. Local folks who come into Mandell’s Coffee Pot on Monday and Wednesday mornings would love to see them I am sure. Please get in touch if you could bring them in as many do not have computers.
    I am not a facebook user – just useless!

    Postmen used bicycles from roughly the 1920s until the 1970s. The photo somehow looks a bit 1940ish to me. Any more postal info would be of interest to the Cumbrian Postal History Society.

  4. Any old photos of the Coxon family who lived in Embleton right through the 1800″s. The patriarch Richard Coxon lived next to the quarry and finished his days in 1877 aged 71 after he tripped returning home one night and fell into the quarry, leaving his second family.

    So glad I found this page I grew up at Low Abbey Farm so the pictures brought back special memories particularly the ones of the old church services which I remember attending so well. Keep up the good work!
