Childhood - a Memory of Grenoside.

I was raised in Grenoside (born 1949) and had an idyllic childhood. My brother and I were heartbroken when dad got a job in Leeds and we moved there in 1959. We left our Grandparents but continued to make the 2 hour trip (before M1 was built) regularly to watch our beloved Owls and visit family. Playing in the Rec (never called it Grenoside Park!) was great. I used to sit on my maternal Grandmother's wall on Penistone Rd and take down car registration numbers. We lived on Morton Place, Paternal Grandparents moved to Frostings Close from Lump Lane just before we moved to Leeds.
