    St Ann's Well Road pre-demolition

    Hi - I'm one of the admins for the St Ann's Well Road Pre Demolition (1970) facebook group. Over time I have been building extensive website which which: Aims to capture the 'essence' of the facebook group St Ann's Well Road Pre Demolition (1970) Online Community Nottingham - Preserves our collective memories - Provides a 'gateway' to the facebook group for new members - Provides a more permanent archive of images/discussions - Provides easy access to topics from the group via the index and 'search' facility One of our most popular pages is the 'virtual walk' along St Anns Well Rd circa 1956 Cheers Mavis

    Nottingham Post (Bygones) will be featuring Pierrepont School for Girls (Gordon Rd) and announcing a reunion of old girls to take place in Nottingham 11th July 2013
  8. I am hoping to reunite with old girls from Pierrepont Secondary Modern School for Girls. The school on Gordon Rd was founded in 1933 and ran as an all girls school till 1968. A Reunion is being planned for the 80th anniversary of the founding of the school this year. All enquiries can be directed to me.

    Victoria Baths

    That's a name from the past = Cyril Stapleton. I recall my mum saying that she went to school with him - and how he had become famous through his music.

    Seeking old friends

    I seem to remember the name Leatherland but not in the context you spoke off. Any chance there were members of the Leatherland family in the Ransom Rd, Coppice Rd, St Anns Well Rd area back in the 1950's?

    It could well be the same Mr Clarke. He was a nice teacher. I recall him making up stories for us about a talking white dog, and teaching music - percussion. I lived on St Anns Well Rd opposite Westminster Street - not far from the school which was on the corner of Duncombe St and St Anns I am now living in the hills outside of Perth Western Australia Photo of school and map of area attached.
