What's now the Viceroy Indian restaurant at Hucknall rd / Perry rd (Prison ) junction used to be a Car sales, that's only a few hundred yards from the  Hospital.

Sherwood Social club, or similar used to be upstairs.

There was Kings around where the Nottingham Post is now. TMS on Carlton rd i think it is still there. Dawsons in Netherfield.

Must be some more.

 

 

TMS are still there, bought a 3TA Triumph from there in Nov 68 for £79 !

In reply to Ian Simpson. There was Dawson's on Shakespeare St, they sold a lot of ex WD bike in the early sixties I bought a nice 1959 Triumph Trophy off them in 1964, they later moved to Netherfield. There was also a bike shop on Burton St not far up from Trinity Square.

I worked very close by and often had a look in,  a nice original Manx Norton sat in their window for ages  £ 140 (I think) but no one was interested in those days.

Anyone remember the name of the shop

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.

Hi Cliff Ton  How did you attach the map to your post?  I've tried attaching some photo's and can't do it.  I think I need a program for this.

Not exactly a program, just an image-hosting site.

 

Look at this link and take your pick from one of the choices.   https://www.google.com/search?q=free+image+hosting&oq=free+ima&aqs=chrome.2.0j69i57j35i39j0j69i61l2.7836j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

 

You need to register with one of them, and then follow their instructions. Don't use Photobucket.

There's so many bike shops closed over the years but nothing compered to the Pubs that have closed, there must be at least six closed on Alfreton Rd alone from Bentick Rd to Canning Circus.    Check out Nottstalgia "pubs closed in Nottingham"

Its a shame to see so many of my old  venues closed, you could have a good night out on Alfreton Rd without going into town .

I Lived just around the corner on Forest Rd, my favorite was the Vernon top of Waverly St, now another supermarket.

There's a very big, old thread on that subject which mentions dozens of pubs.
