Twould be fair to say


school and I were a mix 'not made in heaven', rather purgatory - a place of suffering inhabited by those of us expiating our sins before entry to heaven.

Wilks Wheelwright & Blacksmiths

High Street, Fyansford

Following my recent blog (Fyansford Explorations, Blog 349, https://www.fyansford.com/blog) relating to Wilks Wheelwright and Blacksmith, High Street , Fyansford, I have received an exciting bundle of goodies from Phil Fenton which I shall share over the coming week. However, I have no extra information so if anyone in our community can add any form of commentary relating to any of the photos I’d be really appreciative (Fyansford.com@gmail.com)

A sincere thanks to Phil for sharing his amazing photos with Fyansford.com.

Patsy Wilks, Milly Taylor, Henry Wilks, McNoughton, Barbara Wallace, Ronald, Ivy Wilks?

(Are any of these names incorrect?)

What about these locations?

Attention!   G. Lewis


I never know what will turn up in my email.

Needless to say, I was so very excited to hear recently from Jacob Clark who explained... 

Was working the other day and started chatting to an old fella who does a bit of prospecting. He found a metal tin full of trinkets, inside the tin were 3 fyansford football club Leigh league premiership medal. One from 1921 and 2 from 1922 all belonging to a G.LEWIS. being a local footballer myself I thought they were pretty cool and took some photos. Thought you might be intrested.

What a great find!!!!

Jacob, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness in contacting me.

Hopefully there is someone out there (grand-son or grand-daughter) who might be related to G. Lewis

It would be my guess that G. Lewis would have

been born during the early 1900s.

If there is anyone who can throw light on this

wonderful find please feel free to contact me at:



Or was it G. Leuris?
