Bill Cresswell- "Tarvin Revealed"

Home » Newsroom » Bill Cresswell- "Tarvin Revealed"

In the 1st "Tarvin Revealed" article it showed some of the members of a class which wrote "Tarvin- The History of a Cheshire Village". It also had a list of others, not in the photograph but who were part of the group.


There was however an omission made. Bill Cresswell, who became the 1st Chairman of the History group, made an enormous and very talented contribution to the book. He drew 12 black and white illustrations for various chapters . These were auctioned at the launch party which produced extra money for the charity we were supporting.

Several years ago we tried to compile a list of who owned these drawings. We know where some are but if you own one please let us know. The titles were: John Bruen, 51, High Street, Mounting steps at Holme Street Hall, Old Tarvin, Sundial at St. Andrews, Derelict Farm Buildings, Old Milestone, Stone lion at Holme Street Hall, Stone stile in Hockenhull Lane, Cheese Press at Burton Hall, and The Tarvin Imp.

Bill was the editor of our 1st photographic history called " Reflections of Tarvin".
Sadly both of these books are now unavailable but copies of " Further Reflections of Tarvin" can still be obtained.

Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
