I was born in Barnton in 1943 and Christ Church churchyard was at the end of my garden.
I remember there was a Hickson Street in the village and I'm really stretching my memory to remember a little shop run by the Hicksons.
I was a member of Christ Church for many years.
When I was young Barnton was a very small village then Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) moved in a lot of people from the Liverpool
area and our village at least doubled in size.
ICI was the main employer then; otherwise there were many farms and agriculture supported the rest of the population.
During the war there had been a prisoner of war camp in Anderton (about a mile away) where the Germans were housed.
They in fact were put to work in Barnton and actually built the council house that I moved into when very young.
There were several different chapels in the village but only one Church of England.
Eventually a Catholic church was erected - probably around 1960, to the shock of many residents.
Beside the church and chapels, we had several pubs including the Red Lion, Travelers Rest, Shepherd's View,
and a few others I don't recall the name of.
