My Dad lived there when he was young with his parents & siblings - he & his brothers would get water from the well at the rear of the cottages when the barges came past for money

My great grandad Isaac Woods (1850-1929) was born at Tinklers Barracks. Was a 'little piecer) then signed up for Indian Army for 12 years in 1869. Later worked for Walmesleys Atlas Forge, Bolton. Would welcome any more info on the four cottages and its residents.

1851 Census shows the folk living in the cottages at Tinklers Barracks were mostly cotton spinners and weavers.
