  1. Staverton Rd here. I was born 1946 and my name is Anthony Gavin. I live on 16 Staverton Rd and have so many memories about Bilborough. I was wild with train spotting and often hung around the train bridge on old coach road. Hi guys and girls Anthony Gavin here.Yes Ger I know all the lads you mentioned. Remember the Water bailiff had a very nobly nose he was always telling me off for throwing stones in the water. My mates were Clive Buxton, David Prendigast, Robert Litchfield and Paul Yates. We spent all our holidays around the canal. Climbing the trees at the bottom of the slag heap and looking for fosils on the top. There were some spots where one would sink in over our ankles and it was hot and smelled of sulfur. If anyone threatened me I would tell them that I was Ian Gavins brother.
  2. I worked on the removals many years with big Nev. He was a big blustering man but so kind. He had been a Grenadier guard and also a policeman. I went back to visit him early 80s at Hucknall . I live in Denmark so I lost contact so would love to know what happened to him. Cheers.
  3. Yes Big Nev Drove our van. He was a big bloke with dark curly hair.He had been in the guards and also a police man. yes Terry the mad Irishman. I went out with Moira Lowe who worked in the office. Nice to here from you.
