Jack Ogden Dedication

This article is from Signpost 49, July 2015

This photograph shows the new dedication plate, on S239 at Summer Close, to Jack Ogden, with the original braille plate for Reg Wilson of the Manchester and District Rambling Club for the Blind.The plate is unique amongst our signposts though S120 at Rowarth is also dedicated to him but not in braille.

I (the editor) have attempted to find the history of the Manchester and District Rambling Club for the Blind with little success. They were affiliated to the Society from 1945 until 1995 so were evidently a thriving organisation. The only reference to the Club to be found on the internet is in the history of the Swan Inn in Kettleshulme. In 1962 the Ramblers Association objected to the renewal of the Swan’s licence on the grounds that the licensee had refused to serve, amongst others, a party from the Club.

If any member can shed any light on this Club I would be grateful to be enlightened.
