Thanks for that explanation Geoff. That probably also explains the origination of the name BRADLEY BOTTOMS in Rochdale.

Hi Kath,

Houghton Bottoms is a few miles to the west of Blackburn and gets its name
from the fact that it lies at the bottom of a very steep hill, on top of
which is Houghton Towers, the supposed place from where the name "sirloin of
beef" arose (another story!). The village of Houghton is close by, but on
the other side of the hill.
To get to Houghton Bottoms you leave Blackburn on the A674, in about 2 miles
at Feniscowles take a right turn signpost Pleasington and in one mile at a
sharp right hand bend, turn left down a lane to the group of house that
forms Houghton Bottoms.
His birth would fall in the registration district of Blackburn, I would
guess. The office are very helpfull in supplying certificates.
