TarvinOnline received the following (via the Community Centre Facebook page thanks to Lyn Brunton) from Lois and Roger Norton.
"Hello and Christmas Wishes to members of the Tarvin Community. I just came upon this site. I am doing my husband Roger Norton's genealogy and I am hoping that someone in Tarvin may be able to enlighten me on some of his heritage.
We live in Christchurch NZ and although we would dearly love to visit sometime we don't know when it would be possible at the moment. It would be wonderful if someone reading this can add to this wonderful history line and even maybe be related to him!!!
Roger's great great grandfather was born Samuel Norton 1828 to parents Thomas (b1790 and Elizabeth Dodd b1795). Relatives existed in both Tarvin and Kelsall. I can go back through Thomas to his father and mother Ralph and Elizabeth (Jameson) then his father Ralph b 1740? and wife Elizabeth Turnor 1740 approx), then father Robert b 1704 and wife Hannah Wetnall.
Things become very sketchy thereon and probably there it should stop. I was hoping that there JUST MIGHT BE A RELATIVE in the area who we could catch up with -- long shot I know. It would be a wonderful goal for the New Year 2017!!!
Regards for the Festive Season
Lois and Roger Norton"

Travellers of all kinds have used Platts Lane for thousands of years. On foot was the major form of passage but also on horseback, on small carts or in carriages, as well as packhorses and farm animals.In recent times it was even proposed to build a road through this historic place. How could a council imagine this was a good idea?Thankfully, it remains a quiet by-way for walkers, cyclists...
