I can remember a place we sometimes used to go after the pubs shut, think it was called the Belvedere (?)  From what I can remember you sometimes had to queue to get in, it was up a flight of stairs and wasn’t very big and it didn’t serve alcohol.

Finally pictured Byard Lane and Bridlesmith gate, thanks Lizzie M. You also knocked my memory into gear - 

 

Re the Cabin club, it was run by May Borthwick, (not Madge)  always had a little poodle with her.

The dark building on the corner was cleaned and became Barclays bank and a young Commo was tasked, as one of his office junior responsibilities, with delivering the daily office takings there.

The Shoulder of Mutton at Huthwaite.

This was actually a combined pub and butchery hence the name. I wonder if the same applied to many other pubs with the same name? Closed in 2002 and now a bikie club house

I remember an accident at the Kirkby hill in the very early 50's. It was a Sunday evening, so we were returning home after visiting my nana in Sutton in Ashfield. 

Anyway, we reached the hill to be met with the aftermath of an accident, whereby a heavy showman's trailer at the rear of a fairground convoy had come adrift, and rolled down the hill into the front of a house on the left of the hill. Very embarrassing indeed !

65503-1-280-99999-unpad.jpgThe Hollies Snack Bar didn't hit the spot like the Golden Egg did....and it was better than the one below, near Boots.Sun Valley and the office block behind got a lick of 'mongolia'..received a facelift and became an Hotel.

Yes, just near to the big Co-op.  The Hollies did a great full English. Especially before Forest away matches.
