Allen Priests Mill

In 1969 I worked at Allen Priests Mill as a twister, I also did winding. On my first day I was taught to twist on a Prince Smith, Ann was the name of the person who taught me, I have forgotten her surname, she had a friend called Christine. I then worked downstairs on the Alma machines,with Linda Dutton, Sadie Wheelwright, Pat and Carol. Our foreman was called Lewis Chapman, he died in 1971/72, and Dennis took over from Lewis. Some other people I knew were Doreen Dyson who had a daughter called Maxine, Bernadette who was Irish, we became friends, I was also a friend to Linda and Sadie. Sadie had an accident in 1972/73 when she lost part of a finger, she retired shortley after that, she had a sister who also worked at Allen Priests, her name was Ruth. I used to live at 3 Bath Street opposite Allen Priest houses. I left Allen Priests in 1974 after getting married and moved to Scotland. If I... Read more

Memories of Elland

I lived with my family, Mum, Martha Annie (nee Lumb), dad Arthur, sister Marie (now Richards) and brother Allen at the bottom end of Gas House Lane, now known as Gas Works Lane. We lived there until around 1951/2. I went to Elland Grammar School. The Gas Works were fully operational, we used to collect coke from there every Saturday morning (6d a sack). The canal was also busy with horse drawn barges, the Malt Kiln owned by Edward Sutcliffe, Maltsters was also busy - my dad worked there. Loved the freedom of living ''down Gas House Lane'',,,, happy days

Growing up in Milnsbridge

I was born in 1935 at 25, Pickford Street and lived at that address until I was married. I have so many memories of those years. My first is about New Street Primary School. I lived 100 yards from the school and before I was old enough to go to school I used to go to the school gates and watch the children line up; girls in one half and boys in the other, divided by iron railings, which were later taken down for the war. Once the children had gone into the school I used to take my little red car into the playground and play there all morning - by myself. Later, I went to the school and at the age of eight took my first swimming lesson in the 10 yard pool. I have a certificate signed by Miss Brunning the Headmistress, having learned to swim 10 yards. My pal, Ramond Beever, was in a fortunate position as his father was the school caretaker, consequently we... Read more

Happy Times

Beaumont Park c1960, Huddersfield
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

I lived not very far from Beaumont park and as a child I used to go there along with friends, my sister or my brother, I remember the huge slide that was there and the long metal rocking horse that was on the field. The park was great to visit even at winter times, but the best was the summer when the ice cream shop was open and also the large paddling pool was available. Walking down the wide pathways you would come across the stone lions and the lovely monkey trees. The park will always have a special place in my childhood memories.
