    Anyone like graveyards?

    I've been twice, think you need a few weeks to see it all! No wonder they have tours.

    Anyone like graveyards?

    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.

    Radio Trent

    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.

    Suicides I have known

    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.

    Demolished Memories

    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!

    Hucknall High Street 60s/70s

    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.

    Growing up in Bilborough

    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.
