258 Furlong Road

A Memory of Bolton Upon Dearne

I was born at 258 Furlong Road in 1944. I lived there with my mum and gran for 5 years till we moved over to Purston Featherstone in 1950. My gran was called Elsie Nowell, the years we spent there were wonderful...I always classed Bolton-Upon-Dearne my home. I would love it if I had a photo of that part of Furlong Road. They called the street Packies, there was a shop 2 or 3 doors down from gran's it was HannaHs shop; they used to have everything. The people in the street were lovely. I have very pleasant memories, they will always live in my heart.
