Thanks
If you said Ayup in Sheffield when I was a lad, we would assume you were from some exotic far away place like Bawtry, Barnsley or Rotherham.

Heeley Green area wasn't it?
Spent quite awhile living in Heeley, yes,from 12 to 24.
Best place I ever lived in for Picture houses, and mates to knock about with.
Funny thing is, we never seemed to used the pubs there much...

Up to neck in it.....busy
Fed up to back teeth.....disgruntled

I hate to keep saying it but me too!

I never did go into the Wagon, the Roundhouse or the Ball Inn, the three closest pubs. Strange because we hit just about every other pub within 5 miles.

Were we too "fancy" for our own neighborhood?

(Actually, I was in the Ball Inn a couple years ago, when I was back in the UK for a visit looking for news of old pals)

Don't know what era you are referring to , but it seems to have been some time ago .
I used the Waggon and the round house back in the late 60's early 70's , and they were both good locals .
I think that you may have made a good self assessment .
Unfortunately , you missed out on becoming acquainted with the the locals and enjoying a good set of people.

My era for pubs was ten years earlier, late fifty's early sixty's, and I'm not saying we never went local we did, but dance halls and the cinemas played a bigger part in our lives than local pubs back then.
In fact it's hard to explain to any one who wasn't around pre TV how important the flicks were in our lives back then..
When we did finally settle on a local the group had changed and we all met up in Woodseats....

1955 -60

Elm Tree, Broadfield, Red Lion, a couple on London Road which were all handy to the dance halls. Later the Pomona and Punch Bowl, and the locals with the lads whenever we worked out of town. Locals out of town were dangerous, because they did not take kindly to outsiders chatting up their girls.

Can't blame 'em really, because sometimes we would descend on a small town like a bunch of horny Vikings.

I remember two in particular where we were always at war.

Funny how at school most kids were called by their surnames isn't it, like the Army...
then could understand why they called me nobby (Clarke)

Scoppididdle was a little cracker. I don't know if the spelling is right but I was 45 before I found out what it meant.

I've never heard Scoppididdle outside Sheffield. Brilliant word !

How about 'traipsed' meaning to wander aimlessly.

You were considered well travelled if you had ever ridden t'serkler. (Circular bus route that went around the outskirts of Sheffield)

Motor Bus Fare Stage = bus stop

Jumpin on 'n off = riding a bus without paying when the conductor was busy upstairs.

Fox House, Stanage Edge, Castleton, Lodge Moor, Stoney Middleton. Little John's grave.

All a bus or train ride and a hike at the other end, and usually deserted.

And, if you couldn't resist buying a bar of chocolate with your return fare, a very long walk home.

Last month I was in the U.K. with my son. We did my old walk from Fox House to Hathersage. First time I'd ever done it with money in my pocket.

It was great to be able to get a pint, fish and chips inside the Millstone, instead of having to eat my soggy sandwiches across the road in the parking lot, usually in the rain.

Some changes. A few more trees around and they even have blackberries now.
