Grannys House

A Memory of Bolsover

my grandparents lived at 77 Old Hill, third house just behind tree, Mr and Mrs Thomas.  I lived there till they built the Wimpy estate on fields behind my mum and dad, then got a council house. I loved living on the old hill, the family next door I am still friends with. That big tree in front of the houses used to have a tree swing, all the kids used to have a swing on it. A lot of children lived in the other houses you can see and nearly all still live in Bolsover.
