Staffordshire memories

Valco Icecream Palour

Italian born Goffredo Valco known to the locals as Alf was my great grandfather he along with his wife Maud owned and ran the icecream palour on the bottom on crown bank. I would love to hear any memories of my great grandparents and their business.


There was no other ice-cream to compare with Valcos. My grandma Mayer lived in Church Street, and a nice treat for me as a child to go to Valcos...Very happy times and the ice-cream parlour, may I say, holds many special memories to us Silverdale pensioners.

I Remember The House, The Church, The School Teacherd

I am just feeling old as none of my younger relatives even knew Leycett existed. I don't know what happened to everyone who lived there, all I want to know is about my dad's side of the family (Bloors) all his relatives....anything, I know so little.

Waiting For The Routemaster Bus To Biddulph 1968

The Square 1940, Tunstall
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

I remember waiting for the Bidduph bus with my dad every Saturday morning, sitting upstairs at the front, grasping the rail as a 3 year old. The noise of the engine, feel of the bumps, click of the conductors ticket machine .....pure magic !!!!! The old 11 litre Perkins diesel blowing out more black smoke than a "pot bank" on firing day as it toiled up Pittshill Bank !!!! Then over Chell top, and down into the valley......Happy days !!!!!!!!!
