do remember my emotions that day - great sadness, almost to the point of tears, that I was leaving the place that I had known forever plus a great relief as I had premonitions of things to come in the area I had been living (Sherwood Rise). These premonitions did materialise soon afterwards with the Hyson Green riots and associated mayhem.

I know exactly what you mean, jonab. I felt the same when I moved away from the area. My roots were there and my maternal family's roots had been there for over a century...when it was a very different place.

 

Next year, along with a visit to Berridge, I'm going to have a look at a few other places in the locality, including Garden Street and the Manning site. I may regret it because of the changes which won't have been for the better but I'll always have my memories and nothing can change them.

I seem to remember there was a decent scrapyard somewhere round the back of that garage. Can't quite think where it was.
