Yikes Tosh ! It's a small world. I lived at 19 Forster Rd until about 1953/54. My best friend, Barry Waterhouse lived at number 21. He was killed shortly after that, on Shoreham Street when his bicycle tires got caught in the tram tracks and he was thrown off in front of a car. When I lived there the Parkinsons lived at number 17, we were at 19, the Waterhouses at 21 and my grandad lived at 23 until he died round about 1950 and the Cantrells moved in. Another friend of mine called Pete Mitchell lived across the street next door to Dysons corner shop (other corner from Amy Morton's)

Hi, I new Barry Waterhouse, we were in the same class at  carfield school,a smashing guy, I often think about him after all these years. RIP.

Victoria Hewitt,Lynn senior,Christopher Carter, Lee Bentley, Michelle ?  who lived on Richards road  or any one who remembers me. I do remember lots of other faces but can't  give them names My name is Keith Hewitt and lived in Boyton street. Many thanks and love. A

My grandparents used to own the shop right at the top of Boyton St. Dyson's. This would be going back to the early 1950's.

Hi Keith.

I think I remember you from down Boynton St although we didn't play very often but we used to talk in the street. I lived on Wilson Place but got to the house through the entrance on the corner of both streets where the lamp post was.I think you are probably slightly older than me and you used to think my name was Bird, unless there is another Martin up wilson place I didn't know about so I'm pretty sure it's me.

Boy,  AJS your post has brought back some fond memories for me.

I was a Heeley child, but only for a few years.

Born in Beauchief  as the guns of WWII were being silenced but moved to Midhill Road shortly afterwards to be closer to both sets of grandparents. Went to Denby Street nursery, in the shadow of BDTBL and then to Heeley Bank school, infants 1950 -52, before my family moved further out to Gleadless.

Recall playing in 'Horses' field and being severely reprimanded by my mum for wandering up there without telling her! Crashed my 3 wheeler bike into the wall outside the Coop when I didn't brake in time. The convent was always something of a mysterious place.

I remember some of the shops on Ann's Road and especially the newsagents and greengrocers, the latter always had a coconut hung up which looked like a shrunken head to an impressionable youngster.

I was also fascinated by the chip machine in the fish and chip shop at the bottom of the hill by Havelock Bridge. Whole spuds in and chips came flying out into a bucket. And talking of foodie delights there was Taggies; once tasted, never forgotten and forever hooked.

Like most kids I spent many a happy hour in the local pictures; the Heeley Green, Coliseum and Palace. Even after we'd left Heeley, with family close by, I still visited many of the old places.

They were simple and yet happy times. Looked back on with fondness.

 

echo.

 

The flying chips was Rawsons  Chip Shop
