Memories Of Eastwood

A Memory of Awsworth

I was brought up on Mill Road, Newthorpe. I went to Beauvale School, then Walker Street. I clearly remember walking to school with snow so deep that it covered the top of my wellies. I remember teachers; Mrs West, Mrs Laycock and Mr Besick who petrified the life out of me. I hated that school and hated Walker Street even more, but it's a shame that the schools haven't stayed the same.
