Old Maps of Clayton West

Historic Maps of Clayton West and the local area.

Just down the road from the Shoulder of Mutton pub was Ackroyds coffee bar. In the 60s we young ones would meet, listen to the juke box, drinking frothy coffee. The horse and cart outside the pub belonged to Herman Wood the local milkman. The cart was a daily sight outside the pub.

I was evacuated from London in 1943-44 to my aunt Dorithy and lived at The Royds Clayton West I went to the Skelmanthorpe Modern School. I had a number of cousins who s names escape me ,it would be nice to know what happened to them. I have very pleasant memories of my time there.
