Hi Brian 1941 I went over to Grimesthorpe the other day and boy what an eye opener there is nothing left of the area i lived in ,what a shame .The houses have all gone and the area just left empty ,what was the point?.Took a few photos so will have to learn how to put on forum. PS if there is a get together please put date and time on forum ,will get passport stamped out of Rotherham would like to meet some of you .Jim.:cool:

Hi jim lad, Yes such a shame and nothing has been built around

Grimesthorpe, bet they wished they'd left the houses up now with these

incomers coming in, i'am sure thats where they would have housed them.

 

Jim, the last reunion was 26th oct this year at the ball on

upwell st, not sure if next one is around march if there is one?

 

Get them picture on thread whenever, i,ve only been putting them

on here about 2 weeks and its fun, it gives me pleasure and pleasure

for others to view them. memories. :thumbsup:

Since Dors started the 'Anyone From Grimesthorpe' thread in 2006, many of us have posted pictures of people and places in old Grimesthorpe. Unfortunately, as the posts move on, many pictures and photos are lost or forgotten. Most of those downloaded from Picture Sheffield have gone, I assume there must be a time limit on them.

Searching for a particular photo is difficult due to only being able to see the Photobucket address and not the actual photo .

Flickr is a photo sharing site where pictures are easily found and viewed.

To get started, please click on the above link to get to the Flickr home page.

 

In the SEARCH box type,' cat631' and click Search. Ignore the photos that appear.

Go to the top of the page and three options: Photos, Groups, People, click on People.

On this page click on the Icon of Grimesthorpe School to 'cat631s' photostream and some familiar pictures.

On the right of the page are some more familiar thumbnails or SETS.

Scroll to the bottom and click MORE SETS.

Here, you will find all the Grimesthorpe Thread photos.

To view them choose: THUMBNAIL, DETAIL, or SLIDESHOW options. Please have a look, most of you will be on here somewhere.

If you wish to comment or add a name to a photo, you need to sign up to Flickr which is easy and free.

Finally, if anyone objects to their photos appearing on here, please indicate which ones and I will remove them.

I hope you enjoy seeing them again. Regards, Ralph.

cat631

you speak with forked tongue, on Friday night you said you did not understand modern technology. After your last post I have to bow to your greater knowledge of this contraption in front of me, I had a headache Saturday morning your fault.

Great post well done.

Cat631 - Brilliant pictures. Fantastic walk down Memory Lane.Theres one looking up Wincobank Lane and someone has put a cross above the cottages at the top. That's where the Homers lived. I think Barry was the oldest. I lived just to the left of the photo on Winco Road next door to the Sowters. wonder what happened to them all.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but, I was told yesterday that, Walt Dawson died last week, and maybe some will know Ted, had the paper shop at the bottom of Wensley St, his wife Sylvia also died last week.
