I'm still trying to get my head round how Bulwell has changed since I knew it in the 70s. As I've been chipping tiles off the bathroom wall this afternoon, a clearer picture of how things were appeared in my head.

 

I remember Steggles, the butchers, who also sold pastries, Austin Reed, the newsagents, the dress shop whose name I can't remember, opposite the Coop, now Wetherspoons, an electrical shop..Mick Godfrey? ...don't know where that name came from, another ladies dress shop, TSB, Ford's, famous for liberty bodices, and a lot of other places. Bulwell High Road is confusing me because I don't remember it being there at all. Main Street itself seems to end suddenly, just beyond Wethers so, presumably, buildings have been demolished.

 

Well it is more than 40 years ago and things change when you're not looking! I confess, it has unsettled me a bit. :wacko:

I thought I would treat the missus today to a coffe (99p) and a cultural walk around Bulwell. It was nice to have a mini meet up, meet Andy and Jill and catch up on news with a few old friends she was very impressed.

I hope you realise, Jill, that you will be added to the Bulwell Bluebeard's long list of wimmin acquaintances, and might be mentioned in his memoirs.
