Nostalgic memories of Killamarsh's local history

Share your own memories of Killamarsh and read what others have said

For well over 10 years now, we've been inviting visitors to our web site to add their own memories to share their experiences of life as it was when the photographs in our archive were taken. From brief one-liners explaining a little bit more about the image depicted, to great, in-depth accounts of a childhood when things were rather different than today (and everything inbetween!). We've had many contributors recognising themselves or loved ones in our photographs. Why not add your memory today and become part of our Memories Community to help others in the future delve back into their past.

The scene depicted here has (...Read full memory)

My grandparents lived at Norburn Drive and I spent many a school holiday there. I remember the huge back garden and my grandad growing runner beans and cucumbers. Would love to know how the house looks now.

I was born and brought up on this road, living at number 26 from 1971 then moving across the road to number 39. Lots and lots of happy times here playing with friends and growing up at a time where neighbours helped each other out.

I left Killamarsh (50 Rectory Road) to live in nearby Swallownest in 1960 (age10). Sadly, I left some dear friends behind. Leslie Ellis, Peter Collis, Maurice?
