Bainbridges Sweet shop I believe was somewhat famed by the locals around the cross.  They used
to make large homemade cakes with black current, pineapple and fresh apples.  I am told the cream
would ooze out down your hand.  The shop was well decorated with pink steps and you could see
into the kitchen to watch the making the delicious cakes inside.   Brookland House Farm stood on
Hoylake Road near Knutsford road.  The site was a working farm house for decades.  Like many
others the farmers moved on and the site was demolished to make way for new buildings.  The
Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church now stands on the site of Brookland House.  Next to Brocklad
Cottage.  Next to Brockland house, but before the Plough inn stood the old Smithy.  
The old
The Smithy stood on that site since 1841 but eventually closed its
door for the last time in 1953.  The site was demolished to make
way for a new economy “fuel”.  

Due to the increasing traffic in the Moreton area the Poston Brother
opened there garage.  The building still stands today, albeit with
some modern upgrades, a testament to old style architecture.
