OVER the past few weeks in Yester Years, we have been featuring the story of American life at Burtonwood.

This week, reader Lynn Pickersgill got in touch to send us these great pictures of some of the servicemen taking part in Warrington Walking Day.

It shows her mum Winifred and her sister Eileen Laff outside the golden gates in 1952.

They were walking with Sacred Heart and were joined by members of the forces.

It is believed the servicemen had a chance encounter with the priest at Sacred Heart who explained about the history of Warrington Walking Day and the Americans asked if they could join.

They are also pictured behind the church in the school yard, above.
