  8. #233 Lizzie I have been following the Falcons for the last 3 years on my iPad through an app called Puffin Browser but you should be able to follow them on this link. https://ntufalcons.wordpress.com/ Try it and let me know how you get on.
  9. #73 Dave as you say we were equidistant from the shops at either end of the road but always tended to go to Bradfield end for some reason . The only time I used that entry was to go to the Cocked Hat when I was old enough to drink. You probably know anyway but I can't believe that Prestons Hardware store is still there .
  10. Hi Moirab, I worked on Glaisedale Drive for 37 years and on my way to work had to go via Bracebridge Drive shops for my paper in the morning and on my way home at night plus food shopping at the Co-op store here.
  11. The waste land you are referring to Dave was affectionally known as humps and hollows and we used to take a short cut across there on the way to the beer off on a Friday night for our sweets ( Orchards)

  15. #51 Just to let you know Geoff that post from Soldat was 2012 and they have not posted since 2014. I used to have my hair cut at Charlie's the original " demon barber" Funny how things stick in your memory but I always remember he always had a risqué calendar hanging up and in the the late 50's that was very unusual.
