Fatal Explosion at the Dolce Vita!

A little artistic licence has been employed for that alarming headline, as the events described here happened many years before the Dolce Vita Italian Restaurant came to occupy its present position on Stockport Road, opposite the entrance to Memorial Park. However, as it easily identifies the location in question for the majority of local people, I hope that readers will forgive the deliberately misleading start to this article, just migrated to the new web site: https://www.marple.website/local-history/fatal-explosion-at-the-dolce-vita.html

"THERE'S FROGHALL UP THE CALDON" by DAVID BRINDLEY and JACK TURNBULL

The classic tale of "Froghall up the Caldon" has been migrated to the new web site:

https://www.marple.website/froghall-up-the-caldon.html

Two hilarious accounts of a trip on the narrowboat "ALICE" from Marple to Froghall Junction undertaken by two totally bewildered, bemused beginners in 1989. The first account is The Daily Log written by Cap'n Jack 'Titanic' Turnbull; the second, in verse, by his crew member and cook, David 'Beans Again' Brindley.

Sprinting Porter Saved Diesel Train: Marple man in High Lane Drama

Found a link on FB to this story on the old web site about Jim Noble saving a train and though I'd better migrate it across to the new site. The story from the North Cheshire Herald of August 1959 was provided by Jim's son Ray Noble in 2013. Ray, who can be seen as a small child in Memorial Park with his dad in 1941, was a regular contributor to the Marple Website but is sadly no longer with us.

Memories of Bowden Lane by Selma Fielding has been migrated to the new Marple Website this morning. Read about how much the lane has changed since the days when Seven Stiles had 7 stiles!

Octogenarian Selma Fielding has lived in Marple all her life. Selma has already shared her Memories of Bowden Lane with the Marple Website several years ago and has now passed on this video shot in 2015 by Arthur Procter for publication on the site. https://www.marple.website/local-history/memories-of-marple.html
