Whetstone Past - a Memory of Whetstone.

My father used to drive for the Midland Red Bus Company in the 1930s and 1940s and one of his areas was Hhetstone...His name was John (Jack) Whitworth.

I used to live in Whetstone from 1973 on Bridgeway, opposite the old cinema, then moved to Curtis Close off Attfield Drive, I lived in Whetstone for about 30 years, loved it.

I played table skittles and darts in Whetstone, The Kaffiar, and in Blaby, British Legion, Egyptian Queen and The George.
