Hello dek, I don't know which one, the last time I was in the scotts arms was september 1965, for our pam's wedding reception, they lived in Jayshaw Avenue.
regards Paul


My grans brother lived in Jayshaw Avenue and my gran lived in Waddington Avenue next to the alley that led to Gorse Farm Road where my Aunt and Uncle lived. My gran would shout after me when I went to visit my cousin "Mind the horse road" it was ages before I knew what she was on about!!

Hi All ,

This is a great thread !
I was born in Chantry Cresent in 1968, it was fantastic seeing the old pictures of the area.
I can remember the newsagents 'Clares' next to the Trees pub allways had a vast selection of crappy plastic toy's that I used to make my mum buy me !
Can any one remember Wrights Farm up at Doe Bank , they used to deliver the milk with a shire horse...and the milky would let the kids sit on the back of the cart .

Don't forget Fred the Wacadan milkman.
