Hello. Welcome to the online home of "WHERE'S OUR LIZZIE", a book written by my mother about her childhood in HAUGHTON GREEN LANCASHIRE between 1909-1923.
 
 
   "Born in 1909, Lizzie gives an account of her childhood in Haughton Green, near Denton, in the old county of Lancashire. Back then Haughton Green was a very different place than it is today. It was a rural community dependent on the local pits, the "Gib" Cotton Mill and local agriculture. She started to write in her eighties and finished it just before her death, which occurred just two days short of her 99th birthday. Even at that great age she had total recall of the tiniest of details.
   Sometimes poignant, often hilarious, it contains comments about the lifestyle, attitudes and customs of the early 20th century from the viewpoint of the 21st. It is a first-hand social history, set against such historical events as WW1, the Spanish Flu epidemic and the Miners' Strike of 1921.
