Murray's General store and Filling Station 1905

Murray's Shop, Station Road
This photo was apparently taken in 1905 -  long before we needed petrol in Hoghton!  I remember going to Murray's from the 60's when it was run by Neil Murray and his wife and it was a busy filling station and general store ( the life and soul of Hoghton village!). Later Neil's son Ian and his wife, Stephanie, took over, retiring only fairly recently, and the new owners have transformed it back into a private house. Watch this space for more modern photos.
