I remember Rosie's Cheap Shop so well. I can actually picture Rosie now with her slight lisp. Did she not run the place with her son/sons. I also remember the 10 pence lucky bags from the market, and the sweet shop called the 'Talk of the Town'. I have such fond memories of Batley, but sadly haven't been there for 13 years.
I remember Rosie's cheap shop. My mum and dad used to shop there, there were some good bargains there. wish those times were back.
Does anyone remember the Royal Hotel in Batley, it was on a corner I think of Bradford Road and a road that went up a very steep hill to a village. Lived there from 1963-1965 and went to Park Road School. Looking for a photo of the pub if anyone has one. Remember traffic lights being outside on the corner and a man that used to keep ferrets down his shirt and trousers when he came in for a pint.
