Anyone come from Grimesthorpe? (part3)

Recommended Posts

The Crown pub was on Carlisle Road (Crown Hill) at the Sharp Street corner. If I recall, it was an Hope and Anchor pub.

I've asked this question before, does anyone have a photo of The Crown please?

Also The Hodson which I believe was on or around Adsettes Street?

I've found an old aerial photo of The Crown but it's too distant to see clearly.

Thanks

I think the Hodson was on the corner of Draper Street and Carlisle Road. There was a snug there, a tiny place with only enough room for 3-4 chairs, that was frequented by one or two elderly ladies. It was also where you went for a drink to take out and you would often see someone going for a "jug".

Hi stpetre,

 

Thanks for that. I realise that Sharp street was just below Botham Street.

 

Was the crown just out of shot on the left of the first pic below? Looks like a shop on the right. The only trace of Sharp Street now in existence, as far as I am aware, is the small round ironwork in the middle of the street near the bottom of pic. It's now surrounded by concrete in a business yard. There's a similar one on Adsetts Street where I lived. Possibly a fire hydrant cover??.....

Yes rohsgran, the Hodson was where you thought it was.

 

Hi cat631, here's a pic showing part of the Hodson, but can't find one of the Crown....

Thanks everyone for your replies and the Hodson Photo. I've been trying for a while to complete a photographic record of Grimesthorpe's pubs and now just need The Crown.

I believe there was The Dolphin pub, possibly at the bottom of Draper Street. That's been mentioned on here but don't expect to find a photo of it.

You will be very lucky to find a picture of the Crown pub Ralph, as many have been looking for one for ages, without any luck.

Dor's and I had our wedding reception there when Ken and June ran it in the mid 60's, they didn't have a licence to sell spirits, so I got them from the Hope & Anchor Brewery where I worked at the time, and because we were buying the beer from Ken, he was satisfied with what he got from the beer sales, so we got the room for free also, and his brother was our waiter, and all he we had to do was pay for his beer for the night.

Hi Peter and All, If you look up Crown hill to the left and upside of

the fence at that corner, that was where the Crown pub was and

opposite the little st was Duggie's Hairdressers.

You can see on Peters picture page 86 No 1707.

 

2, The lamp post was where Duggie's hairdresser was and where the black car

is was the Crown pub, that little opening led to Sharp St.

 

3, Looking down Carlisle rd- Crown Hill, Shame know one has a picture

of the Crow pub. Brian.

Hi Peter

 

I have just been looking at some of your recent photos and number 29218 (Sharpe Street) is of my younger sister (Valerie) and her two children. Thanks for posting the one of the Hodson as it shows Draper Street as it was when I lived there. There is a lamp post at the bottom where we used to swing from an old clothes line in the late thirties/early forties.

Hi Peter

 

I have just been having a look at some of your recent photos and was surprised to find that number 29218 (Sharpe Street) is of my younger sister (Valerie) and her two children.

Hi Brian,

 

Thanks for the pics on your post 1714.

 

The fire hydrant cover on Sharp Street, shown in 1965, on the first pic on my post 1707 (shown above on your post), can be seen on the ground, surrounded by concrete, behind the black car in the middle of the driveway on your pic post 1714. If you compare the two pics this helps to fairly precisely place where the Crown and Dougies barber shop were. The grate is a little small but I can easily see it on my computer zoom facility.

 

Peter.

Hi rohsgran,

 

Thanks for you comments on post 1715.

 

It's nice to see you sister and her children

 

I remember sledging down Draper Street on ice in around 1949/50 I think.

Must have many times seen the lamp post you mention. :)

 

Peter.
