  1. This pub was featured on a BBC programme put your money where your mouth is a few years ago. Never been in as it closed down in 2004 when the landlord passed away. It reopened after refurbishment and was advertised as the first non smoking pub before the ban came in. It's now a well established business and well attended.
  2. Not an illegal action but when I was 12 (1960) my mum wouldn't let me play with my hula hoop on Sunday afternoons in case I got too excited. What a harsh life
  3. You couldn't but chips but you could buy scallops that were only potatoes cut to a different shape. Barmy!!!
  4. I too lived on the prefabs but higher up the hill. I remember a sweet shop nearer the garages opposite weslyan reform chapel and a paper shop at the other end. Sadly in the 1950s it was illegal to buy birthday cards on Sundays and you had to buy a newspaper and hide the card inside! Happy days.
  5. My late dad worked there as well. He was a maintenance fitter Alf Gold. He took me to an open day and I my only memory is of a revolutionary bread buttering machine located in the state of the art canteen!
  6. Didn't attend the school but did go to nursery at 3 years old on the 1950s and had breakfast and an afternoon sleep!
  7. Well Molly would have been born in the mid-late 1940s if that makes sense. I know she had red hair and was my late husband's first girlfriend and that she lived in that area as did he.
  8. I've heard of Molly Mansell. Is this the same family
  9. Thank you so much for this information. From where did you obtain it
  10. Hi thanks for this. Will delve further. No record of these people in my family tree. Could be related by marriage of Arthur kynoch to my grandmother who was Mabel Tolson born 1900c and died January 1947 aged 47.
  11. Not so far as i know. Its never been mentioned.
  12. Hi all. I was born in either Nottingham Street or thistle Street in 1948 and left at approx 1 year old. Would have to check my birth certificate. My grandparents were called Kynoch if that's any help
  13. Hi old crown. I was led to believe this pub was haunted. Used to frequent it in evenings prior to wedding in church next door in 1969.
  14. Hey! I'm not going mad then. I remember the trailer also
