@PeverilPerilwhat years were you at windley? i also went there from 1970-74.

A bit before your time - 1947/50. Boys on the lower half of the school and girls on the upper part.


BK - Windley was on Forest Rd about a 100 yards up from Alfreton Rd.

RadFordee. Approximately, in the 50s into mid 60s there was a cobbler straight opposite Gagg's motorbike spares shop; Gagg's was at 106 Alfreton road, 100 yards or so down from Newdigate st. That would put cobbler in the current Tesco carpark location prior to, say, relocating. Other than that I don't know.

@Willow wilsoni'm thinking that the cobblers in that location was probably gone in my time there or that i was too young to remember it there(born in the area 1963)

i do remember gaggs though i think it was next door or very close to norman greaves herbalist shop? & 2or 3 shops down from tommy stevensons newsagents which was next door but 1 to the generous briton pub.
