Anyone come from Grimesthorpe? (part3)

Recommended Posts

Hi Southey owl,

The video of the Human League just reminded me, Joanne Catherall is a Grimesthorpe Lass. I used to work with her father Les' at British Rail at Darnall, and they lived at the bottom of Crown Hill, then when the houses were being cleared for demolition they moved to Hackenthorpe.

Was Bob Pickering one of the large family that lived at the top of Botham St on the left looking down? If so there were about 10 children, probably even numbers boys and girls. The only other name that comes to mind is Roland. fleetwood

Hi St Petre, I lived at no. 17 Edgar Street from 1955 until it was demolished. My friends and neighbours were The Barkers, Sharps, Leggit, Kaczmarczyk, Cryers, Smiths, Trevor Barlow and The Braeley brothers on Lyons Street, I think you must have lived on Petre Street. We lived directly below The Dagenarts who lived on Petre Street. Cheers

Hi St Petre, A couple of years ago I posted some photos of the area on photobucket. Here is the link if it still works.
