H Eatough & Son (Herbalists) Park Road


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Burnley fan in peace!

 

I've recently found this picture of my Granddad's herbalist shop in Park Road, not sure if it's in Blackburn or Darwen. Never met my Granddad and don't have much information about him either so if anyone remembers this shop, it would be awesome to hear about! He had it in the 60's and  70's I believe, picture below!

Thank you 🙂

I'm pretty sure it's not Darwen.

To be fair I actually don't know where it was, this picture was 1979, I wasn't born then! I just know he had a shop around the Blackburn area. 

The Park Road sign might help you. There is a Park Road in Darwen but that unusual building is not something I recognise.

The shop was just the other side of Darwen St bridge Blackburn,after you went past Edmondsons furniture shop going towards Grimshaw Park. My grandad lived on Chapel Place where the Blackburn Arena is now and we would sometimes have a glass of Sarsaparilla there as you can see on the shop sign. Hope this helps you Reluctant Claret.

Yes that's exactly where it was. My mum used to take us in there for a glass on the way to pick my dad's wages up every Thursday night. He was a lorry driver for BRS, and their depot was about half way up Audley Range.
