Balterley - 1966

We’ve received an enquiry…

Hello. My family used to live near Balterley. I have a memory of a vehicle accident occurring one night, when I was around eight years of age. It would have been in late 1966 I believe, as I remember it being around the holidays that year. As I recall, the terrible accident involved a young man and happened right near the Broughton Arms on Newcastle Road. The event left quite an impression. But I live in the United States now and my family is no longer in Balterley. I'm wondering if your society has any record, either oral or written, of this car accident in 1966? Much thanks!

If anyone has recollections or more information about this tragic event then please get in touch.
