I think I may have located a copy of a Lancashire Township.
The listing on the website gives the author as Mark Frost and not Roger Frost as it should be but I am sure it is the same book. I would email the seller before making the purchase just to be sure. Of course, it may be an old listing and no longer for sale but it’s worth a try!


http://www.antiqbook.com/books/bookinfo.phtml?o=acan&bnr=2763
Booknumber: 2763
FROST, MARK - A Lancashire township: the history of Briercliffe-with-Extwistle Rieve Edge Press, Burnley, 1982, First edition.Paper covers.V.g./No Jacket.A thoroughly researched history of the township nestling in the Thursden valley just east of Burnley.Thor's Dene, as it once was, denotes a thunderous cleft as named by Viking settlers; later patterns of occupation, though complex, are described in detail and the history includes much of more general interest due to the early impact of industrialisation on this valley richly endowed with water power.205 pp. In English.
GBP 60.00 [Appr.: EURO 88.75 US$ 118.5 | JP¥ 14064]

That surprises me! It has only been on for a couple of days though so there is time yet.
I don't think it is worth £35. I only paid £45 for mine and it looks to be a much better copy.

Utterly amazed, this ends tomorrow and still no bids. Maybe I was right about it being over priced.

There is a nice tram/Harle Syke picture on ebay at the moment but bidding starts at £14.99. Far too pricey for a postcard.

The Briercliffe Society would be interested in the postcard if they haven't already got it.

I'm sure they would, I think John Bentley pops onto ebay occasionally. Roger doesn't use a computer so he won't see it. He is the postcard buyer. It is pricey though, not sure if Roger has a copy of this or not...I have not seen the whole collection. Roger visits a lot of fairs for this type of thing.

It isn't an 'A' card.

Never seen that one before. It is outside the Tintab and Commercial Pub. The row to the right going away from us is the Cop Row.

The book didn't sell. I wonder if he/she will re-list it at a lower price?
