Growing up in Beighton

Recommended Posts

Hi fixit4u

Chances are I know your brothers in law then. I remember Norcroft Cottages well. I didn't know all the families who lived there but did know of some.

Did you know any of the Tann's from Hackenthorpe? They are my cousins on my dad's side of the family. Patrick, Kate and David Tann - or any of the Lamberts?

Hi fixit4u

Yes, I think I remember your sister. We worked at Shelley's bakery in Beighton after leaving school - our first jobs! I think one of my brothers did used to live on Broadfield Rd for a time.

Hi fixit4u,

I can't say that I do remember the photo being taken. What is Charlie's second name....I may remember him too. Was he a Beighton lad? I'd love to have a copy of the photo. Do they still have it? Was it taken at Shelley's or somewhere else? Where did Sheila and Kath live when they were young? Did they live at the top end of Beighton? I do remember Sheila Craig.

Thanks

Hi fixit4u

Yes, I vaguely remember the 'Storey's. My brothers are John and Richard and yes, I used to live on Victoria Road for a while in the flats. I wonder if there is any way of me getting a copy of the photo without breaking confidentiality......don't know how this works.

Hi jl-heating

I think there were a few Cooper families in Beighton when I was growing up - not sure I remember any of them. Did your father in law work at Brookhouse?
