Lindsay Road Junior & infants school

Recommended Posts

William30. You would have lived opposite the Catells. Gwen lived there with her mother. Gwen was friends with my sister. Did the Hawkesworths live in the house at the side of the

8foot. If they are the same we used to call the younger brother Hawkeye. Deerlands looks a lot different now. The house where I lived has been pulled down along with a lot of others. We lived three doors up from Blackhill.

Hiya lovelace. I went to Lindsay Road. Nursery through to 4th year juniors left to go to Southey Green. You mentioned Peter Varley. His brother Stuart and I were big mates. Just looking at a picture of the old school buildings. Great School great times.

Hi Blackhill,

I knew you must be "one of ours", the Black Hill was for us lot on Deerlands to rollerskate down, & the only way of stopping was to fall into the field at the bottom. Anybody living across the river on Holgate was a foreigner to us.

I vaguely remember Stuart Varley, he must have been the year above me.

I remember old man Crossley giving Pete a smack on the back of the neck & he'd got a very painful boil at the time. He was always on Michael Pagden's case as well.

Mrs. Wright was a tartar. It was a good school though & gave us a good start in life. I passed for the grammar school but "crashed & burned" & left at 15.

Funny how things turn out.

Hi lovelace. I left Lindsay in 1957. Stuart left the same time. He went to Firth Park grammar. I used to live three houses up from the Black Hill. Most of the houses from black hill up to Adlington have been pulled down. when it snowed we used to have great fun sledging down Black Hill.

Hi Lovelace, I’m Janet Hobson (as was) I can’t believe you remember all the teacher’s names and pupils. It did jog my memory reading all the names. I went to Lindsay Road nursery, infants and juniors and left in 1961 to go to Southey Green. Used to play cowboys and Indians with Linda Bellard and Philip Revill and his older brother David. We all lived on Masters Road. Happy days.

Hi Janet,

                     I've only just seen your post on here,  or I'd have replied before.    I remember you very well,    I think I came to your house one dinnertime with Jillian Corbidge.                She lives in Leicester now but I'll remember you to her.          How's life treated you?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Linda
