Malsis Hall
Can anyone put a date on this photograph please - my dad worked at Malsis for many years, as handyman and then as groundsman - it was all during Headmaster Gadney's time. I am just curious if the photo was around that era.

Hi Brenda, it is the Malsis Hall sick room photo you are referring to? (second from the bottom in the gallery).

Very difficult to accurately date I would suggest without the benefit of a postmark on the reverse.

Actually this was one of a series of postcards showing various rooms and recreational areas of Malsis School. I probably have around 6 or 7 more but again none of them were postally used :-(

I think she means the new addition to the gallery this month Andrew.

Hi Maurice. Well I did wonder, but the Malsis School staff photo is dated 1957. I could only find 2 other relevant images in the gallery: Malsis Hall taken c1895 and the Malsis Hall Sick Room, date unknown.

Sorry Brenda, weíre talkiní like youíre not here! Please let us know which photograph you are referring to!

hi gentlemen -
Der Der - is it senility, poor eyesight - or just downright inattention to fail seeing the obvious - I didnt even see the date! - I am sorry to have caused you time and effort by my carelessness but I certainly appreciate you both taking the time and trouble to help me....and I reckon my dad - Eric Harper - would have been working there when some of these ladies were.. - maybe that is why he had to call at the Dog and Gun on the way home so often - the bevy of beauties was too much for him !!
Thanks again and apologies

Itís never a waste of time for me Brenda scrolling through the gallery, itís amazing whatís there!

Yes the Dog & Gun would have been an excellent watering hole for your dad, especially with its close proximity to the school itself. Heíd have been able to clock off at Malsis and clock on at the Dog & Gun all within a minute and a half!

Hi all,
It was our local whilst we were over last Sept./Oct. Enjoyed it, and had a Laycock's lunch with John and family.

The Dog and Gun has expanded in recent years and has a reputation for fine food! It has a website too, listed on the links page.

It also appears that the proposed boundary changes may not happen for a while, so Malsis School and the Dog and Gun look set to remain in Sutton for now.

The boundary changes are due to take place April 2014 I think. New Hall (8 houses now) is moving into Cowling, as is Lower Lane Ends Farm and cottage.
Brush Farm and Summerseat are also coming to Cowling.
Some of our's (16 dwellings) on the top of the hill have very sadly chosen to move into Lothersdale -when they are part of Cowling's ancient history!
Don't know what the point of all this is - and what will happen to the mapping system?
Another one - Lumb Ghyll/Mill opposite Malsis has a planning application in for converting the mill into a house - all well and good - but it is one of Cowling's Listed Building and has always belonged to Cowling- although the application has gone to Glusburn Parish Council for their comments as it states it is in Glusburn!
Do the owners really know where they are living I wonder?

Dog and Gun - We went in there for the first time in May last year after taking my New Zealand grand daughters to the pinnacle - we had an excellent lunch and were blown away by the variety on their lunch menu. It was pretty busy too. It stoked us up before going to Malham and Gordale Scar - all part of their Yorkshire familiarisation !

Hi Joan.
Is Cowling Hill farm part of the 16 dwellings? We stayed there whilst we were over in Sept./ Oct.

I wonder what the rationale is for fiddling with geographical boundaries. If somebody has had a Sutton postal address for the past 30, 40, 50 years, it must be very strange to be suddenly told they are now living in Cowling!

Itís a bit like changing street names. When I arrived in Adelaide in 1994 there was a major arterial road stretching from the city to the coast called Burbridge Rd. On the 1st January 2001, residents living along Burbridge Rd woke up to a name changeÖÖ.Sir Donald Bradman Drive!

No David - not Cowling Hill Farm thank goodness! Those a bit further over on the top towards Lancs. - East Hainslack and Hunters Lodge, Dukes, Davy Hill plus 3 converted bldgs., Th'Oliver plus 4 converted bldgs., and Longsyke Edge plus 3 converted bldgs. - total 16.
