  1. It must be my memory playing up.I do remember the house on the corner as you turn off the main road into Gonalston and also the mill being an empty shell probably late 70s.
  2. I used to live just up the road although I cant remember there being anything there,not even a barn,perhaps that came after I moved.
  3. A mate of mine bought a bike from them,I'm sure it was in 1989.
  4. I had one of the RAF blue rucksacks,it lasted me all through school and the first few years at work.It was covered in felt pen scribble,the top flap was painted black with Budgie (the rock band not the bird) painted on in red.
  5. Jill, I worked at the same dental laboratory from 1985-1990.Could I ask your Mothers name please?
  6. Back in the 1980s I used to take my bikes to Dawsons in Netherfield for MOTS.Park them around the back and wander off for a bit.They never seemed to have moved when I went back to collect them but the MOT had been done.
  7. Yes,RIP Paul Raymond but I am pleased Neil Carter has stepped back into the band to take his place.I saw them at the Concert Hall,possibly 86,on the Misdemeanour Tour,not a highlight for the band.
  8. I was at the UFO gig in 1984,front row,I could hardly stand at the end of the night from the crowd pushing forward.This year saw me back there watching them for the fifth time,this time on their farewell tour.
  9. Scriv,did you know John Stevens?I know he drove the wrecker.
  10. Two of my brothers Gerard and Richard Pearson would have been there in the mid sixties.Does anyone remember them?
  11. Do you know if the picture is taken from the Tower Building at the University?
  12. Ian,was one of the shops in the picture a cobblers?I seem to remember getting a new zip put into a pair of bike boots sometime back in the 80s.
  13. I got turned away from Yates for having a new pair of black jeans on once.It was my works Christmas session meeting up point that night and long before mobile phones.Hung around outside but it was bitterly cold so ended up going home and missing the works do.That was nearly 30 years ago and I have only been back in once since.
  14. The Grove looks a right mess these days,its been boarded up for ages.I had a pint in the boat at lunchtime today.
