The picture above shows Holt Green in Aughton, where Church Lane, Bold Lane, Smithy Lane and Brookfield Lane meet.  Out of sight, round the right hand corner, was Aughton Parochial School.  The ivy-clad cottage on the left was home to my grandparents and parents.  One of the houses in the distance – Littlegarth – was home to Miss Marjorie Holmes.

This website looks back at life in Aughton, especially Aughton Parochial School, Holt Green, St Michael’s Church and Town Green. First-hand accounts are backed up by photographs and newspaper articles. This is a resource for family and local historians, current residents of Aughton and those who no longer live in the village.
