The house next to the playing field was owned by Jacky Pownall.

I don't know about that Den.  There may even have been two houses on that lot.  I'm not sure.  It was quite a big lot and he had a place at the side nearest the old rail line that he used as an office if I remember correctly.

This might be of interest. I don't know anything about it, so can't guarantee what might be on offer.

Carni, if you (+ Sue and Lizzie? ) want  to go to this, we could probably make it as well .... anyone else?  We could meet up somewhere earlier in the day?   PM me?

I reckon we’re possibly about on that day/evening.    I’m sure you’d enjoy going to our old school Margie.

Sure would, Lizzie, although I might get emotional!

And the house immediately right just after the bridge was where my friend David Torr lived. His family owned Torr's coaches which were stationed in netherfield. My school All Hallows always used them for weekly trips to Carlton le forum baths.

Pictures from a drone over part of Gedling. It shows the old pit site, and the new housing now being built there.

Very interesting CliffTon. Thanks for adding it to Nottstalgia for us. In pictures of Gedling, I always look for the church to get my bearings, and there it is...I can even see our old school, plus the dreaded grass bank that the newbies used to get rolled down. the estate and other land marks. Quite a veiw as well of further afield.
