Spent quite a lot of my younger years there. I went to the old village school in the 50's and can remember the blacksmith's shop next to the post office in main street.

Was in the first group of kids to attend Birley Spa Junior's and then finished up at Carter Lodge. Lived on Cotleigh Way and later on Birley Spa lane. Can anyone remember Cotleigh Hall on the Main st. ? We used to play in the ruins after school and were lucky not to come a cropper climbing up to the roof.

Happy Days

I went to the village school in the 50s, then moved to St John Fisher's.

 

Remember well the post office and it's YZ chewing gum machine, Spencer's farm (he delivered our milk in his green Fordson van).

 

Do you remember the story going round about the fields behind the school being haunted by fighting soldiers?

 

Lived on Birley Spa Lane - no. 232 - then.

I was at the school when the Coronation was on in '53 and do remember Spencer's farm opposite. I think one of the son's was in my class. Was only there a short time. The storey about the ghost soldiers rings a bell somewhere!

Michael! I remember you. You lived just down from the mid-wife's, opposite the Gagen's and near to the lad who was "vertically challenged" and rode a motor bike.

 

I lived at 57.
