I worked at Samuel Osbournes in the late 60's in the Wicker. They went on to take over part of Hatfields, Hall and Pickles. dont know what happened after that. Tell you what . It was the best job I ever had.

I worked there in the mid 60's. 8 inch mill on Blonk St. Some names I recall, Bruce Fox, Mick Hill, Jeff Greenhill, Stuart Sorsby, Ken Sorsby. no doubt more will come to me the moment I shut down.

I worked as a reeler at Blonk St/Wicker aroundabout '59/60, and also got to learn a bit of centreless grinding. Moved to Bacon Lane on the new c/less bar turners which I loved but they wouldn't pay me a fair rate. Saturday lunchtimes we used to go to The Grey Horse and had a great time with the skiffle before going to play football.

I believe 'Hall and Pickles' was the Ecclesfield site.
