    I have enjoyed your website site so much. I live in Gloucestershire but married into the Seed family in 1965. I’ve always enjoyed our visits to Lancashire, enjoying a drink at The Top House and a cup of tea with Maggie Moon who lived on the corner of Windy Street where I sampled a cup of tea served in The Lancashire way – a spoonful of tea in the mug and pour on boiling water ! Ugh when you get a mouthful of tea leaves at the bottom ! I haven’t finished reading all the information on your site yet but I have seen photos of my late husbands ( Raymond Seed) uncle Harry Seed and your mention of Harry’s Brothers Percy, Horace and John, also their Father Horace senior who was a sawyer who had an accident, lost his legs and consequently died. I have quite a few of Uncle Percy’s poems (he used to write for a publication called The Longer Seng), the snippet ‘rhubarb and custard’ was just how I remember him. My father in law – Fred Seed (Percy’s elder brother) married Doris Porter, Jenny Parkinson (married Douglas P another sawyer) was my mother in laws bridesmaid. It’s nice to know these lives aren’t forgotten, so thank you, thank you so much.

      Thanks for your comments. I have many happy memories of working at Berry’s in the 1960’s & 70’s and remember many of the Seed family, especially Percy, who I worked closely with. He had a very droll cense of humour.
      Best wishes
