Oakhill History Club are delighted to be group winners in the National Archives 20s Streets Competition. Students have researched Longworth Road in Billington and the family who owned Oakhill House to find out their stories and piece together a community’s experiences as they lived through the trauma of war. Longworth Road was then known as Factory Row and students used a variety of sources to investigate what happened to the families who worked at the Judge Walmsley Mill. They also found out more about the people who built their school building and lived here in 1921. Students visited Whalley Library to conduct their research and accessed the 1921 Census through Manchester Central Library. Our thanks to Library staff and to the National Archives for organising the competition which the students thoroughly enjoyed. Their prize is an all-expenses paid visit to the National Archives in London so more exciting stories to share in the coming weeks
