Nostalgic memories of Nottage's local history

Share your own memories of Nottage 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.

In the 1950s the push and pull train would stop at Nottage Halt if you put your handout I went frequently on the train to Pyle to watch the express trains come thundering through, I was only six and travelled on my own for the day. I remember playing on the Josephs farm on Stormy Down, happy days!

I remember as kids we used to watch the trains go past Nottage Halt, to look at the old track now it is hard to imagine anything other than a tractor using it. One day we walked through the railway tunnel that used to go under Nottage, it's probably still there, though blocked off at each end.
