A true story of life in Bugsworth in the early 1900’s

BBHT have a supply of the wonderfully written story of a life spent in Bugsworth (pre Buxworth) from early 1900 left to us by the author Hannah Rose Swindell.

The title ‘EXCEPT THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE’ appears to be a misnomer for it is not in any way religion related.  Names of villagers come thick and fast as does the way of life which has now long since gone.

The book can be bought at the Bugsworth Basin shop or from Ian Edgar MBE, at Top Lock House, Lime Kiln Lane, Marple, SK6 6BX. (0161 427 7402). Cost £5.00 plus P&P if applicable.

All proceeds go in to BBHT for the upkeep and continued restoration of the Basin.
