Whit Walks in Newton

Colin Critchlow sent us these fabulous photos.

They are of the Whit Walks in Newton. The walkers are standing on George and Dragon Square on Bennett Street in the early 1960's. A huge crowd there as there always was on Whit Sunday.

Over to Colin...

" I managed to take these photos from my wife's parents bedroom window on Bagshaw St, Newton.
The Mayor and Mayoress were Mr and Mrs Leech."

Flowery Field, Rosemount and St Mary's churches still process. Now they go to the Park. Ministers and a few people from other churches in the town meet them there for a short service on Whit Sunday.
