Hempshill Lane Bulwell, 'Sankey's Tip' and Fun in the 1960s


Recommended Posts

I think it was posted on FB by "Nottingham from the Past" but it said it was Hempshill Lane, a comment asked ''was it the darts Team outing? Typically FB took it down next day but I thought DJ360 might have recognised it!

Thanks CT, gotta admit, it's difficult to visualise images that were, when one looks at the area present day. Another pub that come to mind is the "Cross Keys" that was up Commercial road. At one time my Aunt and Uncle had the place, so I was informed by my Gran, who lived on that road.

Albert.. I definitely recognise the building. Also this posted by Cliff Ton

My great uncle Cecil had the Grocer's shop which is just a window with blinds on the left. Left from there would bring you down to the Star Inn, now the 'Moon and Stars'. I think  The Black Horse is already closed... on the right.  Hempshill Lane runs up to the right of the Black Horse.. The small premises front and centre was apparently a shoe repair shop, where my mate Picko worked as a delivery boy way back.  On down Coventry Rd (Straight ahead) would bring you back onto Main Street/Cinderhill Rd opposite Boowul Youth Club... pretty much where Bowul Bus Station is now.  My other mate Dave Cartwright's Dad had a shop down there...

A long lost world..
