Re: BEVINGTONS & SON, NECKINGER MILL.

Back in the 70's on our back home from school we would pass Bevingtons on Abbey Street and we would dare each other to go up to the lime pits via the side entrance and look into them! We knew that the factory produced leather but in our child's minds we thought that cows were put into the pits that ...

Re: The Boy and the Bridge (1959) - Film locations

Re: The Boy and the Bridge (1959) - Film locations

Hi Matheson Yes, sometimes the Square was used for the market stalls as an over spill, but the main market was above the Square in the shaded part which was a car park for most of the week. Thanks for the info on watching this film. Have just finished watching it and boy what a treasure this film is...

British-Railways-Ticket-Punch-Nlippers.jpg M192.jpg s-l500.jpg We use to help ourselves to a few of these near some roadworks, rascals I know, and take them to our hideaway den in an old disused factory.

Re: DO YOU REMEMBER THESE?

H20253-L114360277.jpg Back in the 60's, this was the must have toy for xmas! All I ever wanted was a 'Johnny Seven Gun' (the seven meant that the gun fired seven projectiles). After a lot of nagging, my parents eventually got me one. One of my friends, who lived opposite our block in Abbey Building...

Re: Abbey Street

Lovely photo of Abbey Street. If memory serves me the shell fish stall was only there on a Sunday morning. I remember we use to hang around the stall just before he packs up for the day hoping that he'll give us any of his left overs!!!! I also remember on one occasion coming home from school, we we...

Re: Grange road

Hi Kiwi

The first photo looks as if it may be just off the junction with The Grange opposite the swimming pool? Would be interesting to see where it is.
But to be honest Kiwi I'm more curious about the "FREE SEX" sign displaying Green Shield Stamps??
