Froggatt Village - a Memory of Froggatt.

I lived in Froggatt from the year I was born,1942, to 1956. My grandmother, Mrs McDonald, ran the shop in the village. I attended Curbar Primary School, a gang of us used to walk it there and back every day, come rain, snow or shine. Passing my 11+ saw me moved to Lady Manners Grammar School in Bakewell where I was to suffer under the hands of snotty prefects, two of them lived in Froggat and one was called Carol Jessop, I can't recall the name of the other. We moved to Lincolnshire in 1956 where my fellow school friends found my dialect hard to understand!
I live in the Isle of Man now, but my wife and I visit the Sheffield area every year to see old friends.
Not the same village as I remember it as a lad though.
