Happy Times At Petries - a Memory of Langley Park.
Lived at 22 Darcy Street and then Esh Hillside. Went to Petries Ice-Cream Shop, mainly Fridays and Saturday nights. Happy times, great music and company. My dad and three uncles all worked at the pit. In 1955 I joined the Royal Navy for national service. Good friends; Jack Hoggart, Alan Gardiner, Allen Cartmell and Jackie Cuthbert.
