Cheeky bleeder, I spent some time in there, never saw anything wrong!

From Bentinck Road up to Canning Circus it is a bit rough. The shops all seem to be junk shops, pizza shops, mobile phone shops other fast food shops all of which seem to be run by non indigenous memb

I go to a nail bar on Alfreton Rd when walking there it certainly isn't the most pleasant place to be. As Malcolm said. Endless fast food takeaways and phone shops. Sad really as Mum tells me it used

Is Corporation Oaks still standing? One of my school friends lived there, I thought her house was really posh (being a Medders girl) - her parents ran a newsagents on Mansfield Rd. Being quite innocent in those days I never understood why her surname (Coughtrey) was different to the one over the shop door, realise now her mum had remarried.

#28 - do you mean the Langham on oh blimey I've forgotten the road - the one running through Hyson Green to Basford. Is it Radford Road? Anyway I used to babysit for the landlady in the early 70's, there was a guy fantastic guitar player called Cozzy or similar. He used to play it behind his head, through his legs.

Thanks Benjamin - it could easily have been him, right period and Cozzy short for Costello? He was very skinny I recal. How sad that he got killed, spookily I was only talking about him a couple of weeks ago when chatting about great guitarists. He played it with his teeth too .

Sad to see the Spread eagle and the Alma in such a disgraceful state. My grandparents and some aunts and uncles lived next door to the Spread. The back yard entrance was on Peveril St., so spent a bit of time there as a youngster.

Enjoyed those two photos of Alfreton Road in the sixties especially the second one showing the Mini Traveler with the roof rack, The Ford Consul Classic and the Triumph Herald Estate. Those cars would be worth a few bob today.
