Atherton village school history quest

First published in

VILLAGERS want to compile a historical record of Howe Bridge St Michael's School at Atherton.

They are seeking information from when it was built in the 1870s and are keen to locate photographs, names of past heads, teachers, caretakers and other staff.

Any tales relating to St Michael's would also be appreciated to help current and future generations understand what the school was like in bygone days If you can help contact Natalie Haynes on
