Hi Nosey Nellie,Thanks you nudge my memory yes Eva was one of the girls ,Eric the brother and Cliff was the cousin his surname was Savage.Do you remember the Roes,probably no21 Rudyard they had 4 children Les,Margaret ,Alan and Neville.You say you lived at no30 was that Rudyard?Yes we did play out all day if we wer'nt in the river we where annoying the neighbours playing football and cricket in the street not many cars came along in those days.Didyou remember Gray's yard?

 

Did Margaret Roe marry a Grayson or am I getting mixed up again.I used to take one of the children to school for them and I don't know if it was Margaret or Allan.Yes we lived at 30 Rudyard Road.

We also used to play on what we used to call the bank which led to the wall between Rudyard and Burdalls we could get between the corrugated metal sheeting.

Mrs Willey used to keep chickens on the bank because she lived in the house at the side of the bank I remember one day my brother let all her chickens out and they were running all over the bank he was very young and was just curious.

Custard don't forget Custard.

 

The story goes that Johnny Jolly used to be friends with michael Underhay so michael was given the nickname custard so they were called jelly and custard I don't know if this is true.

Come on Sweaty tell us some of the other nicknames we had down there.

Where was Grays yard?

 

Wasn't Gray's yard between Ryder and Haggard on the opposite side, about five houses down from Trevor Needham's or was it right at the bottom o't' rudyard on left hand side?

Sweatshop boy Gray's yard was between the Yorkshire Penny Bank and Randy's chip shop. Right at the bottom of Rudyard Rd lived a lad called Bill Wainright his father kept pig's in the yard.I remember all the family's you mention,the Gregory's lived at no8 Treswell Cres; the Coyle's at no30 and the Rylatt's at 27,Rudyard Rd.The Crappers and Schofields home's backed on to the river. Nosey nellie i know Margaret Rowe got married but i don't know who to ,I know she had twins ,did she take over Mrs. Rowe's house when she died 21 Rudyard? I remember very well playing on the bank,:huh: a boy called Eric Jowitt broke both his arms swinging on the tree's .Do you remember the son of the Kirbyshaw's or the Bocking's i can't bring to mind which family, the son was called Neville ,his nightclothes caught fire and he died from the burns ,they had the shop on the corner of Kipling rd, at a later date the eldest son of the Baxter's lived next door to this shop.Jonny Jolly lived on Rudyard Rd where the bungalow's are now ,didn't know about the nickname:huh:
