Memories Of Walkley

Recommended Posts

We moved to Crosspool in July 59, when I finished at St Mary’s and went to High Storrs.

I’ve put a visit to the Walkley Festival on my to do list this year - it’ll bring back memories.

 

I’m sure it will bring back memories .I still live in Walkley and whilst many of the buildings remain the same ,there are so many people who have moved on.

I have just acquired a Kelly’s Directory for 1957,and had great fun checking out the residents along South Road and all the side roads from Fulton Road to Industry Street.

For every name I remember there’s half a dozen that I have forgotten

Yes, usual suspects - Mr Jarman, Mr Dore, Mrs Reynolds, Mr Forester, Mrs Smith and a Reception teacher ? Mrs Schofield.

Are you still in Walkley?

 

Sounds like Mr Forester, Mr Dore, and Mrs Schofield (although that last name seems familiar from somewhere) had left by the time I started. We alternated Mrs Davison, Mrs Smith for much of our time there!

 

No longer in Walkley, I am afraid. I left in 1978 and rarely get back there these days. It does seem to have changed a lot. Many happy memories.

sorry I should have said Mrs Howorth she and her sister lived below us the top of cromwell street where the builder lived I thought he had a yard there but he must have operated out of his home address

Mrs Howarth was my great aunt. She lived at 19 cromwell st, her sister Mrs Mellor lived at number 15. Neither had any children. Their brother was a plumber, he lived on Duncombe street

Opposite the Gerties cafe there is a cobbled path that runs behind where betfred and the roller blind shops are now.

 

its fenced off but there is a really old brick building behind there - it’s on stilts as if a horse and cart might have gone underneath.

 

does anyone know what this was?

I have also wondered this myself  - would be interested if anyone knows the answer!
