Thank heavens there's 2 of us!! Even though I no longer have family in Warsop I still come over for 6-7 games a season, and watch them when they're over this way. Unfortunately missed the Bury game yesterday as I had to go to Birmingham sorting out family affairs from our last bereavement. Roll on next season and let's hope Haslam rolls off somewhere else!!

Mmm, you mean there are other forum members who are as old as me! :oops: :roll:

The fifties were my pre-school years! We lived with my grandma at Church Warsop then I moved to Warsop in late 1959 and lived with my Aunt for three months as my mum was in hospital having my brother. He was born in the early hours of 1st January 1960, the first baby of the decade. My Aunt took me to school on my first day, Hetts Lane. My mum came out of hospital mid January and we all moved to Warsop.

Clements was a favourite for the Sherwood Street School kids. I recall in the 60's a spate of thefts from the shop. Harry made a rule that only 2 children were allowed in at a time. This lasted for some weeks and I can still recall hoards of kids queuing outside the shop to be let in at lunch time (probably a dozen in reality). My recollection of Hooleys shop was a rickety old black shed with a drop down shutter at the window. We used to stop off there when we had been walking in the woods at White Gates, especially if we had been picking blackberries of chestnuts.

Your right there Bert, their name was Shaw. I think you will be more Caz's age which puts you about 20 years older than me........

Hi folks,
Sorry not been in for ages :( But some wicked memories in this thread lol.

I went to Sherwood Street school from 60 to 64 and remember Fretwells shop, he used to have three trays of toffees for the kids, the 1/2d tray, 1d and 1,1/2d boy that seems like nothing now lol but we used to have a feast with our pocket money. I remember the sweet shop on Warsop windmill crossroads as well, not thought of that for years, we used to buy a bottle of pop when we went up the Three Corner Wood or to the Parliment Oak.

I dont know how many forum members have moved away from Warsop and still visit, but recently i visited my sister up Mount Crescent and i got awesome childhood memories as i drove down from the windmill thinking of the orchards we used to scrump in and the damn huge dog Nurse Pearce had that roamed her orchard on Sherwood Street, her little wooden bungalow long gone now and is a cul de sac with houses on. Just down from there is a big house set back next to bungalows built in the 60s below Mount Crescent and they had a sweet shop in their house lol, ah happy days :D keep smiling,

Bob.
If you cant be good, at least be funny :)

Stubbins from Shirebrook

Postby Houghtonjd » Sat Nov 28, 2009 3:07 pm

Does anyone remember or know of my Grandfather Willoughby (Bill) Stubbins?, born in Shirebrook. One of his siblings was a brother by the name of Ben Stubbins.

I was born in the 'Old-Part'... there was a sweet shop on the corner of York Terrace/Wood St. taken over in the late '60s by Mr. Fowler (can't remember the name of the previous owner). When he sold up it became a car repairers/tyre fitters.

Furthur along was the' Launderama' and Creswells supermarket.

Corner of Wood St/Victoria St was a Butchers and over the road the Cooperative.

a particular favourite of ours was 'Watsons'. . . .weren't those Wagon Wheels and penny Arrow Bars huge in the '60s and over the years they got smaller n smaller :lol:

Just been scrolling thro' these posts - and thought I would mention two of the ladies I go to see in the course of my work - I'm sure some of you must remember a Mrs. McCarthy as she was a school teacher for many years. She tells me her father used to own the Talbot when she was a young girl.
Another lady - Mrs. Duckmanton came over from Germany just a couple of years after the war to marry Sam Duckmanton so she has many memories of Warsop too as she has lived here for over sixty years now.
Both ladies are now in their 90's.

You know, it would be lovely to get some stories of old Warsop from these elderly residents. My dad used to love telling me his childhood memories and I could have learned so much about our local history, if only I'd started listening to him sooner. We really should take note before it's too late!! :(
