Anyone on here from Woodhouse?

Recommended Posts

my father is called Denys Barfield, he came from Woodhouse. His mother was Mertyl Dunk married to Bill (sadly both died).

Not sure where in woodhouse but my gran Mertyl used to work in the working mens club -in the days when they weren't supposed to.

She was tall with red hair and often called 'fag ash lill' for obvious reasons.

 

My father married my mum (Eileen Jones from Beighton) in about 1947.

He was working down the pit but then joined the army.

My nan was myrtle dunk and my dad was John and I am still in touch with uncle bry and aunty Tina are you trying to get in touch with them

Hi Valjones,

we must be related!! Nice to meet you, I'm Christine.

 

I haven't seen Bryan since I was a young teenager (54 now) and never met Tina.

I lived in Doncaster for a couple of years when I was 16 (love the place) but haven't been back since, its gotten far too big.

 

I've moved around a lot, Ireland, Wales and so on, you know what its like, time moves fast, kids, work and responsibilities tend to take up every second.

 

I didn't know your dad at all, although my older sister did as she stayed up in Yorkshire. Perhaps you know her?

 

What a way to have to meet relatives!

Say Hi to Bryan and Tina.

I think Bryan rang my mother a year or so age, really pleased she was.

Thinks she misses the old home lands a lot.

Well it’s been a long time since I lived in Woodus.

Reading all these threads has made me quite nostalgic and I remember lost of names and some are still friends. I was born and bred on Southsea rd number 7 to be exact, lived with gramma and grandad  before moving to Hacky to live in the matchbox houses. Most of the older guys would remember Grandad , Nobby Clark, he was always in the West End with a little kid with a crewcut, that’ll be me.

Hi there I lived in Woodhouse Mill from about 65 to 74 on Horsewood road near the Ironbridge.

Never went to any of junior schools in woodhouse but did a couple of years at Beaverhill till about 67 then moved on to Central Tech. till 70ish. (horrendous bus journey evry day till I got a Lambretta)

First pub I ever went in was the Junction.In later years used to drink with a lot of the Badger Est. lads.Anyone remember Steve Burgin? I recall holiday in Lloret de Mar in 73 where we tried to drink the town dry! there must have been about 30 of us in the same hotel.

I left the area in 74 to live on the east coast and am still here.Dont get back much now except for the odd funeral.Not many relatives left now so wes ill probably get back even less

Steve Burgin a friend of mine ii stiil  see   him lives at Harthill now

Hi spider 1, managed to get back in contact with Steve a couple of years ago and went to see him last summer at his home. It was good to see him again but sad to see that he's not as vibrant and mobile as back in the day due to illness. Still got a wicked sense of humour tho. had the wife (who'd never met him before) giggling like a schoolgirl, mainly at my expense!

I lived at 40 Sheffield Road Woodhouse for fourteen years and left in 1965 with family for Auz.  I attended Woodhouse West Primary School on Sheffield Rd and my two sisters after me....I can remember lots of names and still connect with others from Sheffield Road.
