My grandparents, Lil and John the Piggotts, lived on Delves Drive since the mid 60's, we (dad, mum and brothers) moved back in the early 80s after living in Rotherham and then Park Hill.

As I said earlier an Uncle still lives in my grandparents old house.

I lived at 68 Newstead Way Hackenthorpe from 71-74 with the Parker family having moved from Park Hill flats. My time spent with my sis and brother in law was brilliant and I remember loads of good people from that area at that time. Most weekends were spent up the Frecheville and Birley Moor pub and the one opposite which became part of a golf club the Fairway I think it was called.
I joined the Royal Navy from there in 73 and we had a leaving do at the Manor House down the road can't remember the name of it if anybody can help Lord of the Manor for the evening and all that.
Went out with several girls from Hackenthorpe all of whom I have fond memories of.
Long walks to the Harrow pub which had a disco type thing going in the 70's and even longer walks down to the Forge where Roger Moffat used to drink.
By the way at my wedding in 78 he sent a personalised Radio Hallam message to all our family as my sis used to get him ****** in the Bluebell before and after he went on air, I think it then became Crazy Daisy's or something like that.
Great site this, living in a new town Basildon Essex they don't have things like this to talk about.

Best wishes to all in Hackenthorpe

Hi all,
I teach in Hackenthorpe, in the new Rainbow Forge Primary School (in the old Carter Lodge building).
My class will be studying the local area as part of our geography and history work, and I was wondering if anyone has any old photos of Hackenthorpe, Rainbow Forge (old or new) or Carter Lodge that I could use.
I've enjoyed reading this thread and finding out what Hackenthorpe was like in days gone by... certainly more interesting than any history book!
Any help much appreciated!

Yes I was from Hackenthorpe untill 1964 I can remember many of the kids I grew up with. I lived at 33 Delves Drive and the kids I hung around with were Peter Townsend, Gerald Smith, Tony Maikinson, Peter White Linda Havenhand, Magerat & Lynda Bailis the Disney family (the dad was the local Police Man) I can vaguely remember the Piggot family and also the Simonite family.
I spent my early years at the village School then to Rainbow Forge School, the teachers I remember were Miss Cantor the Head, Mrs Box. Mr Taylor and Mr Macike.
I now live in Inverness Scotland it would be great to hear from Hackenthorpe

Me too. I was riding my bike on the pavement in front of Gower & Burgins shop at the terminus. He spots me and says, why are you riding your bike on the pavement>? I says, "it's safer than the road".

He gives me a clout round the ear, not for riding my bike on the pavement but for being cheeky. Those were the days.

I once found 2/6 at a bus stop on Birley Spa Lane on my way home from school. I told my mum that 'Walt' had given it to me for fixing his cycle lamp. A few days earlier my dad had explained to me that torch batteries needed to be connected up + to - or they wouldn't work, so I remembered this and told him that this was the reason why I got 'Walt's' light working.

He said that he'd keep an eye open and thank 'Walt' for his generosity the next time he rode past. I was pooing myself for weeks, hoping that my dad didn't see him. Nothing came of it, thank God.

Another Disney story:

Autumn 1966

Me and my mate Paul decide to have a fire as It was winter. So we got loads of newspapers and all sorts of packaging, stuffed it into some carrier bags and went off to find somewhere to get one going. Oh yes, I took a bottle of turps just in case we had trouble lighting it .

We went up onto the football field on Drakehouse Lane and decided to get one going on the other side of the changing hut were we wouldnt be seen. (There was no houses or Crystal Peaks there then).
It was covered in some corrugated sheets and the flames were lapping up it nicely. As the flames began to die out I thought I'd chuck the turps on to bring it back to life.

Well the flames leapt 15 feet into the air under the corugated sheet and set the hut on fire. As we stood there stunned who should be stood right behind us but Disney. Me and my mate legged it and left the old git standing. We run over the fields to Beighton and went back to Hackenthorpe in a big circle.

Some hours later we both went home and as I went through the front door my dad was stood behind it. Where've you been he said? playing cards at my mates, I says.

No you haven't you lying little bl**der, you and your pal have burnt the bloody football changing rooms to the ground havent you. I thought to myself - - just before the first blow hit me. How did he know it was me and my mate.

It turns out along with the newspapers, I had taken some old birthday cards and envelopes with my address on and Disney had fished them out of the fire.

While we were slapping each other on the back thinking we had got away with it. He had got on his bike and gone down to our house and told me dad. He said he'd thought he'd caught Harry Roberts as there was a nationwide manhunt on at the time looking for him. He'd seen the smoke and put 2 and 2 together and come with 5

Anyway you can thank me for the new changing hut. I paid for it in skin ,flayed off my backside.

I lived round the corner from Chris at the bottom of Carr Forge Lane from mid sixties to early seventies, he was a nice bloke.

Does anyone remember Mick Nolan who lived with his parents on Dyke Vale Road until the late sixties, would have been aged about 19/20 in 1968, little feller and a right good laugh. He was a car mechanic by trade as, I believe, was his old man. He was a good mate of mine in those days. I would love to know what happened to him.

One of my aunts lived up near the 'top-shops' and the club, Carter Knowle (?), her inlaws, the Wiles, lived opposite us on Birley Spa Lane. My Nan had a cousin and his wife, the Mckevoys, who also lived in Hackenthorpe.


I went to Rainbow Forge and then Carter Lodge, that both schools now dont exist is a bit unnerving.
Sean, I never knew your family from Hackenthorpe but I knew them from your dads next school in South West Sheffield. I will send you a PM. It would be nice to make contact again.

Hi Lostrider,

Your knowledge of Hackenthorpe seams to be good, as regards ChrisCrossley as a member of the area I new him in the early 70's he was the resident DJ at Cinderolles/ Rockofellers leeds and as a DJ I am well aware of Chris and his nickname the Mighty Atom because of his size. He is a great Guy and has taken his situation and proved to all that it is the individual that matters, not the apperance. I take my hat of to him and have a great deal of respect for him.
I have seen your Disney stories and it does reflect the Gentleman even as a Police Officer we all new our place.
May I ask what year and location you lived in Hackenthorpe so that I might be able to place you, maybee we have met.

Regards Dave

If you knew Gerald Smith you should be able to find him on this photo: can you put names to any of the others? I'll see if I can make a list.

Free at Last
I think he is stood behind me to the right of the picture, with his hand on my shoulder.

We moved to Hackenthorpe in 1954 when I was one year old. Lived on Delves Avenue. Moved away in 1975 when I got married. My dad was a copper, but with the Sheffield City Police. I had a mate on Delves Drive - Peter Brown.
