  1. Sorry it's took me 13 years to reply to this and your right I was with Keith Lomas on the day it happened it was a surprisingly warm day for late October and we were sat on the grass at Hinde House when a teacher came to us and asked Keith to go into the school. I knew something was wrong but didn't know what and for obvious reason he did not come back out. It is one of those days in life you never forget.
  2. The name change was an extra L on the end of Darnel (Darnell) but I can't remember ever stopping there in the past years, The Skegness to Sheffield train used to stop there last time was in 1979 in my case so maybe it was left open for goods trains
  3. You never know after all they re opened Darnal and Woodhouse, why not Heeley
  4. She wasn't from Nepal she came from Persia
  5. But they can also be very useful for people to be extra vigilant when leaving the house unattended, if there is any burglary's in my area then I want to know
  6. Sometimes facebook allows them your seeking to find you. I have recently found some missing family on my Fathers side who I was trying to trace but they traced me and now we meet up occasionally. If your not on FB give it a try as you never know
  7. I'm still here to Sputnik boy, in fact I have been looking for a few old History and Ex Pat guys from the early 2000s guess some of them are long gone.
  8. Yes, I opened this thread way back in 2003 and now run Pitsmoorians of the past on FB many people have met old friends on there and it has built up to 3.5k members. See you there if you have not already been Paul
  9. I thought I would bring this up to 2019 and wondered if Sheffield still have rides for Brompton users like myself. I have read this thread with interest and I find the Brommie gets me up the hills fine though I do have to pace them slower
  10. I have just read this old thread with interest but thought I would question the clearance date you give as 1959. I used to play in the old back to backs on Verdon Street in the 60s and around 1970/71 and remember the houses still there then although empty we used to collect our firewood from them for our bonfire where the school is now. I also remember a barbers shop on the end on Bramber Street I think because that is where I had my hair cut as a child
  11. If anyone has one would it be possible to see one working. I have been down to Evans cycles and seen one but I was baffled with the software side of it. .nothing new there for me but I want to but one if I can find someone knowledgeable about them
  12. Or my wife, who has never used a mobile, laptop or computer and has no intention of using them. We get the BT call a lot usually a Chinese Woman on the other side and I got a shouty bloke ring me saying not to use my car anymore as I was seen using my phone at the wheel. Obviously I'm smarter than they are because I told them politely to get lost but my wife was a bit more vulnerable good job I was there to educate her.
  13. If they call at my house they will get a free showing on facebook with there ugly mugs form my cctv
