Old Times - a Memory of Wombwell.

I have lived in Canada now for fifty two years and manage to return to Wombwell to meet old acquaintences. My childhood started in Womwell in 1943, first going to Park Street School and then on to the Modern School. I too danced at the Baths Hall with my brother and sister. We are the Whitehead family, once living on Milton Street and I just love to hear from my pals. The Wombwell Woods and it's beautiful bluebells often come to mind. I was disapointed to see that the Park Street had been torn down. I believe it was built in 1872 and now there are so few heritage buildings left.
