Recommended Posts

 

Of course i knew Bri, but we used to take a couple of crates of pale ale out.Don't forget there was quite a lot of us in our gang so we used to take it in turns every weekend at someones house.Cheese and onion grated before we went out slapped on breadcakes when we got in.Eee them were days lad.By the way that pub down from John Heath was Guards Rest sure i said Grapes and i can't be bothered going back to look.x

By, those were the days my friends when you could rely on the trams,

are you in this picture, three people upstairs at front one looks like me.

 

Just for fun, this tram on upwell st is making its way to page hall, but

where was the first stop after it came from under the Bridge.

Seeing that map showing the asylum took me back to the days when as a small boy i would walk down past the Hooker and walk down to Carlisle St to meet my dad coming out of the steelworks .My Grand parents liver on Carlisle St i can just remember a couple of houses still standing and how if i climbed over there wall i could play amongst all these funney bits of wood that turned out to be casting cores.All this from just looking at an old map.:)

Seeing the tram going under Upwell St bridge reminds me of when it used to flood and you had to get across by climbing allong the railings.

Hello Jad. I think it was around 1960 when that pattern store caught fire. The biggest bonfire I've ever seen.

You are right, there was a stop pposite the gasworks, the next stop was opposite, Belks, about where the crossing is now. Do you remember when a crossing was first put in. It was the side of Ibbersons shop. I know because I croose from Lemm's to go home and a policeman followed me home and told my mum and me that I should have used the new crossing, My mum gave him an earful, telling him that I would have two cross two other dangerous roads to cross the across the crossing. not long after that the crossing was moved to outside Lemms. Can anyone remember who Dr. Willie knocked down on that crossing.

-----------------

Hello Ralph How you doing, to be honest although i was working

at Firth Browns on shift work i can't remember much about that fire.

-----------

The one that stands in my mind even to this day was the fire next

To the Alexander pub on Carlisle rd.

I remember living in Hunsley st and kids shouting FIRE down road,

i and my neighbours rushed down, Christ you could hardly see the

Crown pub for the smoke ( pity loved to had called in.) :hihi::hihi:.

The fire was to believe at number 2/3 Mechine shop, they had outside

contractors in the firm during August weeks shut down, was said

some cloth or an Electrical fault that set the fire off.

They could be another story to it, not quite sure of date that year.

reaction it got, this site has been struggling for months now.

I'd like to see Grimesthorpe peope come back on here, it is the

best site on the forum and it was always on page one.

If you want to tell us a joke feel free or tell us some pass stories
