FRIARWOOD LANE, PONTEFRACT
ADDED 13 JULY 2007
My husband and I have lived in Friarwood Lane,
Pontefract, for forty years and would like to know if anyone can give us
some information about what the area was like in earlier years. Both
neighbours on either side of us have now deceased, but I can say that on
one side, the neighbours were a Mr and Mrs Garnham who owned a sweet
shop in Gillygate. On the other side lived a Mrs Kitty Dunwell and her
husband, who was a joiner, but we would like to know more about the
We do know about Ewbanks Liquorice Works which was adjacent to the
bottom of our garden before the hospital took it over, and that directly
across the road there was an orchard, again, before the hospital took
over the land. We would however, like to know of any earlier things.
I must say that I enjoy your Digest Magazine and its contents.
