    Let them rot in hell. That's what I say. UK was not good enough for them. Now they want pity.

    Keep the ISIS brides out of the UK. They knew what they were doing. I have no sympathy for them or any others who left to be with ISIS

    Sheffield then and now

    I moved from Sheffield. Over the pennines to Blackpool in 1984. Go back visiting relatives and friends now and then. Definitely not the same. I used to live on Deerlands Ave. My old house and most around have been demolished. Don't know what's going to replace them. Thatcher and her motley crew ruined Sheffield and other areas.

    Wensley street prefabs

    Yes I remember the high wall. Me and my cousin Jacqueline (she lived in Wensley Street) used to play in the yard a lot. Weren't the toilets at the top of yard, opposite the back door?

    Just been on Google street view. There is a massive mosque opposite to where my grandad and you lived. That was street view 2017. Area where the house was is just trees. Street lamp still there. Not original one obviously.

    Next time I am in Sheffield, might go and take a look at Botham Street. Just to reminisce a bit. Crazy eh.

    Wensley street prefabs

    That was my grandad Joshua William Fothergill. I am his grandson Edward. So the couple who lived there was your mom and dad. Didn't see much of them but they were very nice. Can't remember them having a son. But obviously must have had. I think they lived in the front room, not sure. Small world eh

    hi Bothamlad. Unbelievable. My Grannie and Grandad lived in that house. They moved to Botham Street from Deerlands Ave in the early 50s. I and my cousin, who used to live in Wensley Street prefabs, used to visit them all the time. My Grannie passed in 1958. My Grandad passed in 1961. There was a couple who used to lodge there. The house has long gone now, just waste land last time I saw.
