I didn't live in Darnall but my grandma and grandad lived on Fisher lane, just up from the medical aid. My brother and I used to think that Batman and Robin lived in that detached house just down from the M A :)

 

I used to love going to play bingo with Grandad at Darnall libs, and we had some great trips out with the club.

 

We used to go to Lomas' chippy.

 

We had some really happy times in Darnall in the early to late 70's.

I lived in Darnall untl we were moved for redevelopment.

I loved it it brings back memeories , piggy lane allotments, long summers in High Hazels Park, and the club trips to Cleethorpes and Mablethorpe. Do you remember Whitby Road School, getting evacuated and every one having to be bused to Achreshill school? Whitby Road stared to fall down a disussed mine shaft. Must be getting old!!

Hi...my husband used to live in darnall too until they were moved cos the houses were being demolished....they lived on Cattall Street..think his parents had been there years...his grandparents lived on the street with the post office at the top..forgotten the name now...would it be Farenden or something like that?? I can remember we hadnt been courting very long and he took me home for tea..as you used to do in those days....and i started to wash the pots after tea and found no hot water coming from the hot water tap..there was cold running water but no hot..so i started to bang the tap..they all stood and laughed at me..i had no idea houses didnt have hot water...felt a right pillock!!! Theyre house didnt have a bathroom either...it was the tin bath or the shower in the corner of the bedroom...it was only a 2bed house so my husband used to have the landing as his bedrooom...a dividing wall was put up and a small bed was put in for him.....god kids today would think you had gone crazy if they saw that wouldnt they??

I was born and bred in Darnall on Pearce Road. Lived there till I was 17 when we moved but all my memories are there. Attended Whitby Road and Darnall Board schools, Darnall Congs, loved it at the Darnall youth club and had many happy times in High Hazels park. Happy days!!

My mum lived on Scarbrough Rd with my nan and grandad, i remember there were 5 or 6 houses to a yard and the toilet outside. My grandparents had to move onto the Greenland estate when they demolished the houses.
