Childhood Memories - a Memory of Rockbeare.

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.
