Manor Farm

A Memory of Goldthorpe

My earliest memory of Bolton upon Dearne was as a 5 year old living at Manor Farm next to the bookies - I used to chalk up the results at the bookies. We had sheep on the farm and I remember a rather bad tempered ram which along with my brothers Robert and Neil, we would tease quite a lot. I went to the local junior school but not for very long because we moved to Lincolnshire, but I always remember Manor Farm. Friendly stoic people, Yorkshire through and through.
