Ivy Leaf Holiday Site, Blackpool
« on: Sunday 12 July 09 13:47 BST (UK) »
I don't think the Ivy Leaf holiday site, Blackpool exists anymore but someone told me it was probably one of the first in the area and the former proprietors hold records going back to when it started.  Had a look on the internet but haven't found anything yet.  Would be grateful to hear if anyone knows about this.

What a tremendous website, I've just spent ages viewing the great postcards and photographs, a pictorial history of the Fylde

Well done

I have a dim memory telling me that the Ivy Leaf was on Common Edge Road in Blackpool.  Close to the intersection with Squires Gate Lane.  If my memory is correct (and I'm going back 50 years or so) it was next to a small cottage with a blue plaque on it which I think was supposed to be the oldest surviving cottage in the area.

Hi

There is an Ivy House Holiday Camp at 196 Common Edge Road, Blackpool (South Shore) in the 1951 Telephone Directory

In the 1963 Directory, besides the Holiday Camp, there is also an Ivy Leaf Club on Common Edge Road along with Ivy House Holiday Chalets and Ivy House Service Station.

In the 1971 Directory, the Holiday Chalets, Service Station and Ivy Leaf Club are still there, but no Holiday Camp

I can't find any reference to an Ivy Leaf holiday site  ??? ???

The Ivy House Holiday Camp was opened in 1935 by Fred & Bertha Wood

Bertha's younger cousin was the jet engine inventor Frank Whittle
