Not sure of year when all them house were built on whiteways but

we use to play football on that land.

Hi Brian, not sure when the houses on Whiteways were built, but the 'new houses' on Earl Marshall Rd were built when I was at Owler Lane Infants School, 1957'ish. We used to go and play on the building site at lunch times, and got into trouble when we went back to school after diner time, late of course, because we were covered in mud, then when I got home, in trouble from my mum.

Hiya George, I bet you were a right mischief - Hmm.

Me and my friends use to climb to top and walk round scaffolding,

at w/ends.

Can you remember the first lot of houses on corner of Earl Marshall rd

thats when we started playing on them buildings, they had lots

of fancy railings round the house.

It was end house going up that drive to whiteways. :|

Hi all, Just been bowsing through the different subjects and came across one Sheffield from the air. There are a few photos of Grimesthorpe Gas Works, and the is no road over to the station and the school (I presume the one by the traffic lights junction of Jenkin Road is on Rose Hill(?). The photos were taken in the 1920s. I know my dad always called the top of Holywell Road the new road. It also name the farm as Grange, That is if I got the orentation right. There are allotments where Readymix was.

Yes Pigeon it was Cookies Farm I used to go there and feed the chickens and pigs in the farm yard and we occasionally rode bare back on the old farm horse. We also used to go caroling at Christmas and were invited into the kitchen to sit by the fire in the Inglenook Fireplace to warm up eating mince pies and drinking hot milk
