Whittlesey, Market Street c.1965

Memories of Whittlesey


I started school here in 1961 and have recently returned to live in this area. I would love to contact others from this era to share memories.

Hi, does anyone reading this have memories of park lane school from the early 1970s? I was there around 73-75. We lived in Parkinson's lane . I'd love to hear from anyone

Researching my family history I have found the sale papers for the Bricklayers Arms. It was sold by my Great Grandmother, her husband was Frederick Easom Robinson. It was sold on Friday 8th august 1890. The sale was for Brewhouse Blacksmiths & Wheelwright shops, two Brick Built & Slated Tenements, an orchard, and 4 acres of land intersected by the railway, formerly the Brick Yard.

Am interested in the Simpson family. John Simpson died in the Workhouse in 1880 and his son Thomas also died there in 1901. Would also like to know more about the man who designed the Workhouse, whom I believe to be called Fred Peck.

Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?
