Crookesmoor or Crookes-moor School is till there allbeit some kind of training place now. As you will know it was spit in two with an old cobbled road that used to run between Crookesmoor Road and Oxford Street.

 

I wonder which pubs your dad used to run in Crookesmoor?

Hi

 

I attended Crookesmoor from 1960 - 64.

 

We lived at the off license just below the school (diagonally opposite to the Ashberry Pub)

 

 

I have discussed the school before on another thread - in partcular, one of the teachers - Mr 'Pop' Edwards

Hi all and docmel

havn't seen this latest thread on crookesmoor. I went to the old place from1954 to 1961. I lived on Cross Addy street. My mother also went when it was girls and boys seperate from about 1932 to 1942 she lived at the time in Wellfield road her maiden name was Thelma Wheeler. My wife lived in Martin Street but never went to Crookesmoor she moved in about 1956 her mother and father were Bill and Mary Ibbotson. Her auntie lived in Hammond hill near to Last orders her maiden name was Elizabeth Ibbotson.

 

would it be of any good regarding people with relations that either lived around the area or went to Crookesmoor for us to post there namesdates in area and old address. What do you think, i'll set it up on another topic.
