  1. I'm sure it was late '60's. Spoil from the old collieries was burning underground, under the road and water was pumped into the ground to put it out, then eventually road was resurfaced and reopened.
  2. Hi rockers rule, how I wish I could get a SX200 for £50, today. To get one today that needs restoring, you're looking more than £8000, oh how I wish I still had my SX200 .
  3. I volunteer on the canal, and as 'drolnhoj' says, if you walk from Worksop Road, up the steps, along the canal towards Sheffield, just before the bridge, on the right is the remains of the old Attercliffe Station.
  4. Sorry to hear that Gaz, wasn't he a relative of yours?
  5. Bought my first Lambretta, a Series 2 TV175, from there 1967, £60. 2years later traded it in, with them, for a SX200, both lovely machines, wish I still had them. Got a DL150 now. The 2 men that ran it were both very friendly and helpful, both were in their 60's.
  6. Hi Gaz, no he's the son of Fred Ward, Birdwell Rd area.
  7. Sorry to be the bearer of more sad news, Melvyn Ward passed away 20th of May. Funeral to be 5th June, Grenoside South Chapel at 3.30. RIP Mel'
  8. I think when they left The 'Arms, they went to the pub, bottom of Dixon Lane, Norfolk Arms?
  9. Yes, I agree with your sentiments, I remember them from The Britannia, Worksop Road.
  10. Francis Butler used to run a Youth Club there which I used to go to, about 1964/65.
  11. Someone threatening to jump off roof of what used to be Lissermans shop?, so I've been told.
  12. Hi Southey owl, The video of the Human League just reminded me, Joanne Catherall is a Grimesthorpe Lass. I used to work with her father Les' at British Rail at Darnall, and they lived at the bottom of Crown Hill, then when the houses were being cleared for demolition they moved to Hackenthorpe.
