I grew up in the house next to the Crown and Sceptre, I recall sitting on the wall outside the house counting the cars go by. I went to school in Rockbeare and remember the long walk to school. My teachers were Miss Wilsdon and Miss Bennett. Such a long time ago now. I also remember the local Dr, Dr Gipson, having his surgery in Mrs Finnimores front room.

The field in your picture where the sheep roam is now a football field and a park for the children of Rockbeare.
