  1. Re your post on The Bobbers Mill crossing you and the chap who answered your post you are totally wrong with regards to some of the detail. I am Marie (nee Marshall) and I am the 3rd oldest of my 4 siblings. You were correct as far as our family name but were wrong in what you said about my mother. She didn't go around in an army greatcoat & boots pushing a "barrow" if your referring to my youngest sister Jaqueline  I know for a fact that she had a push chair, the only one of us that had special needs was my brother Peter who was 4th of the 5 of us, he suffered with a heart murmur from birth. I really would ask people to get their facts right before submitting throw away comments on other people's lives.

    The chap that said Peter had Callipers is also totally wrong, I don't know who he was talking about but it wasn't my brother!!

      Might jog a few memories? She's referred to a Brian Marshall here but identified the boy as John Marshall in a later post.

      Wow I was wrong! Although we do look alike and Freckles has clinched it so it is my sister Janet. Thank you. I know Betty Green she had a younger sister called Vivienne Green , were friends in Secondary school. Whereabouts is nut yard I can't recall the place?

      I wondered when I saw freckles had given the name Janet to the girl you thought was you.


      Nut Yard was somewhere off Cyril Avenue and is long gone.
