You missed the best eating place in Euxton, The Bay Horse, on the Wigan Road - Euxton Lane
- Runshaw Lane junction. Their pub lunches and meals are absolutely superb, they even do
egg & chips. The Bay Horse was originally a coaching house so it must have been there
when you were about. The Euxton Mills do good pub meals at reasonable prices.

Dear Kind person of Euxton,
Telephone: 013-752 7722 (RSA)
An ancestor of mine was born on 17 December 1873 at Toy Farm in Euxton. Her name was Mary
Eleanor Wilson. She was a Roman Catholic. Please will you let me know where Toy Farm is
and if you have any record of her attending the school in Euxton or of her father, Joseph
and mother Annie? Her father apparently was a station master in Chorley before this. I
shall be extremely grateful for any information.
Your message at www.Euxton.com/Believe.htm
was most interesting to me. As you say on your site somewhere, "Why did they
not teach this at Youth Group?" My sentiments also, I now believe, but all
those wasted years ! ! ! !
Re: United States Army Air Force
Researching 8th USAAF Replacement Depots in the UK, one was at Stone in Staffordshire
(Station 594), the other was at Chorley, Lancashire. The curator at Astley Hall thinks the
object of my research may have been Washington Hall, Chorley. Can anyone confirm that the
Americans were at Washington Hall during WWII ? The replacement depot at Chorley was
Station 591, The 12th Replacement Control Depot. I just need to know its exact location.
Many thanks in anticipation.

I have looked at your Euxton web site with great interest as my father in law was born in
Pincock Street. I would dearly like to know more about the cottages (number 1.) and any
other information you may have about Euxton.
I also believe owd Bob Morris had a wood mill in the area.

I live in Euxton and I am interested in the history of the area. On the history page of
this Website, you wrote that part of the Roman road was still visible on private land, so
I am writing to ask you where that stretch of road is located, and whether there are any
roads/public footpaths from where the Roman road can be seen.
Many thanks in advance,
