Marsdens Funeral Home, Lytham Road, Warton
Marsdens Funeral Home, Lytham Road, Warton
Back in the 1960s ... and for many years afterwards ... I remember this building as the local Paper Shop.
I also remember the word CAFE being (just) visible on the roof ... probably dating from when the 1940s when the Americans took over Warton Airfield, which is situated over the road from this building (and behind the photograph position).
The Americans developed the Airfield into the BAD2 Airbase. I believe BAD1 was in Warrington.
The Airfield is now owned by BAe Systems as their Warton facility.
The McColl shop just down the road now serves the village and BAe workers with their Newspapers and
Magazines.
