Mansfield Gasworks..

Yes, Just off Ratcliffe Gate behind St Peter's church. When we got off the bus at the top of Midworth Street to go swimming at the baths, depending on which way the wind was blowing you got the smell of either the gasworks, the brewery or the cattle market.

Granada..showing Young Winston.

The Granada was my favourite cinema in Mansfield. Demolished when the vandals at the council built the concrete abomination that is the Four Seasons shopping centre as was much of Mansfield's heritage when they built the ring road.

Never went in the Empire cinema but had a pint or two of Shippo's across the road in the Belle Vue Hotel.

From memory I think it might have been Halfords bike shop and a drapers shop?

That Berry Hill Rd.i see?

Ian it looks more like the building of West Notts Tech at the junction of Nottingham Road (top right hand corner) and Derby Road past the front of the site. When finished it replaced the old technical college on Chesterfield Road.

Many lunch time pints and pasties at the Rushley just down the road.
