Does Any Remember Pat Walker

Recommended Posts

I knew Pat in the 60s.  I was a young sailor and she was still at school (Greystones).   She was a lovely girl but we lost touch and I just would like to know how her life panned out.

I remember a Pat Walker that lived on Slate St at Heeley in the 60s

Thanks.  But I don't think that was the right girl.  I think that the Pat Walker I am enquiring about lived in the Nether Edge area.

Thanks anyway.  I'm just glad that someone is talking to me, at least.  I knew the Heeley District quite well at the time.  I used to go to the Heeley Colley bug house quite often  and the Helley Palace also.   We'd always get in without paying, usually through the exit doors which one of our gang would open for us.  I had a brilliant childhood.

There’s plenty on here happy to respond to a bit of nostalgia. Some are a lot slower than others unfortunately.

There’s a few threads about Heeley and it’s cinemas and it’s people ftom round about our time.

I was a Totley boy so our cinema of choice was the Abbeydale. 
I remember though once trying to get in the Heeley Palace to see The Young Ones and not being allowed in cos I was underage !!

Obviously early exposure to Cliff would have damaged me permanently!!

I lived practically next for to the Abbeydale cinema.  We used to get into there on most evening for nothing also.  It was more about getting in than the movie.   But the abbeydale was the best of the ocsl flea pits.

Great night out for a young lad.

 

You know the thread about Abbeydale Secondary Modern that you’ve got going ?

Was it part of the same building as Abbeydale Primary School opposite Broadfield Rd?

Not to be confused with Abbeydale Grammar that was on Hastings Rd

Yes I used to love the herbal shop  and would always go for a pint of sasperilla on my way home from the Heeley baths.  Or sometimes I would have Horlicks.  The great thing about that shop was also their herbal tobacco.  God knows what was in it but I smoked it often, rolling herbal fags with my little fag rolling machine.   Its a wonder that I'm still alive.
