  1. I've been twice, think you need a few weeks to see it all! No wonder they have tours.
  2. I like graveyards, though a lot of people think it's odd. I see them as full of history, not morbid at all. I loved the cemetery in Haworth and the central cemetery in chorlton manchester. It's vast, keep me visiting for a long time.
  3. I had a crush on Steve merrick! I sent a request to him and he played it! I stayed home to listen and was in trouble with my sister, turning up late for a shopping trip.
  4. That was very interesting. I lived near there, ilkeston road, in the 70's.
  5. When I was 17 i found pills in my mums bag, it's hard when you realise your mum was planning such an awful thing. That's a long time ago, but it hurts that she would have left me that way.
  6. I lived on gawthorne street in the 70's, with my mum and sisters. Haven't seen it for years!! There was a shop at the top of the street, owned by ted, he weighed me a quarter of sweets once and took one out because it was over the weight!
  7. Gosh that's a sad story. I remember it was one of mums favourite pubs, we lived in hyson green when I was born, her whole family did, later we moved to bilborough, but her heart never left hyson green, I remember all the streets you mentioned. i know my grandad, my mums dad was invalided out of ww1, not sure about the details.
  8. Does anyone remember the grand pub? I think it was in the hyson green or Radford area.
  9. They still do sausage meat sandwiches? As i remember the cafe was famous for them. My mum used to work there in the 70s and i used to babysit for their daughter, Avril? April?
  10. Does anyone remember the mill cafe on bobbers mill? Run by the West family?
  11. I lived in Newstead a few years ago and was amongst the first staff to work in the new branch of peacocks on the high street. Is is still open? I know it was sold to Edinburgh woollen mill and a lot of branches were closed down.
  12. I believe they were part of a big family. Kathleen was originally a yeatman. Had a lot of brothers and sisters. Jack, Maude, Les, Evelyn, Harry, he was a Soar. Married to Irene.
  13. Does anyone remember these? They moved from hyson green in the sixties to Bilborough. He was a conductor on Barton buses. Sometimes went to the beechdale pub or the Grand in hyson green.
  14. My sister ran this pub for a while in the 80/90s for a short while. I visited once or twice but i didn't live close by.
  15. Thank you Benjamin 1945. Feels good to say it after all these years. As an adult I would probably like to know about his time in the war, I didn't know why he had a bad leg. Think all our generation had fathers or uncles who fought in ww2. My uncle died of fever in a Japanese war camp.
