 Clitheroe Golf Club
Clitheroe Golf Club was formed in November 1891 after an inaugural meeting at the Starkie Arms Hotel and for most of the next forty years the course was situated on farmland at Horrocksford.
A great step forward was taken when ninety six acres of land were purchased for £5,000 at Barrow Gardens in 1932, the generosity of the Southworth family also making possible the erection of a fine clubhouse building, as well as the establishment of a full 18 hole course rather than the 9 holes originally planned.
The 1939-45 war brought a slump in membership, and the occupation of part of the course for army exercises caused some damage, but the golf boom of the sixties heralded a new era at Clitheroe and the appointment of Peter Geddes as professional greenkeeper in 1960 saw new ideas put into practice.

 Jane and Lady Clitheroe : The Female Voice and the Gender Paradigm
For Jane, it is rather the woman who in courtship and marriage must take on the form of the man, and Jane, of course, does not even see this metamorphosis or union as involving equality, for she states in her metaphor of the rainbow that the woman still becomes a weaker version of the man.
Lady Clitheroe turns the tables on Jane's conception of marital and gender hierarchies by insisting that men are incompetent, and it is women who, in fact, must manage both men and their financial and social affairs.
Lady Clitheroe's italicized emphasis on the word "is" thus allows us to see that this description of Jane as "pet-like" is linked to a suspicion of her servant-class heritage.

I used to enjoy listening to The Clitheroe Kid on the radio, but it doesn't seem that long ago that I heard of his death.
There was a reason why the Radio 4 documentary took the form that it did, which was simply that we couldn't interest them in a straight biography of Jimmy, because they'd done one as recently as 1999.
To be fair to them, the BBC had done three previous radio biographies of Jimmy Clitheroe - in 1973 (just after his death), in 1992, and again in 1999.
