Maghull – The Old Forge – A new old photo comes to light

The derelict Old Forge as it was in 2002

I’ve blogged about the Old Forge in Liverpool Road North a number times and as a consequence of those blogs another photo of it has come to light via Joan Neville a committee member of Skem Heritage and here it is:-

Turns out that Joan was helping a friend sort out some photos and it popped up. The source of the photo is not known I understand but some Googling by Joan led her to my blog postings and my being sent the photo with permission to share it.

Here are a couple of my previous blog postings about the the Old Forge.

I’m guessing that the gents in the photo are the owners-Barnes family/workers at The Old Forge but please readers fill in any details that you can. I’ll also post the photo on Maghull & Lydiate in Old Photos Facebook Group.

My thanks to Joan for sharing this smashing old photo.
