The Village c1960, Burton Leonard

Grew up here, the school was my first and used to play football with my mum and dad and sis, a truly beautiful place to live. I remember Bells shop, the annual fair, and when me and my mates used to tie the church gates so the married couple would throw money to distract us so they could untie them, great memories. :) I live at 1 Peter Lane, just across the green from my school.

RE: My Home

....ahh yes, Burton Leonard. I was born in the Royal Oak pub in 1960 where my father Derek Riley was the landlord. Was Bells shop the one in the picture or was it the other little shop back up the hill? I have fond memories of Feast Day. We were great friends with the Elmsly's who lived opposite the pub. Grandma Dixon lived next door to the Royal Oak. All seems such a long time ago.
