  1. There are two pictures here of my grandad and nana the one of Dick Molyneux who was my dads father sitting on his doorstep, and the one of the lady cleaning the step that was my nana who lived at 53 berry street thanks

  2. That’s correct. I’m Lisa’s older sister, and I lived in Berry Street,at No. 59 until I was almost 13, in 1964. I was a pupil at the Endowed School. My teachers were as I remember….Mrs Valentine, Miss Blackledge, Mrs Robinson and then the Headmaster, whose name I can’t remember.

  3. That’s right. I remember now, I can picture his signature in a book I got as a prize. I can’t remember the name of the teacher I had after Miss Blackledge.

  4. I lived in Vale Lane in 1960 and went to the Endowed. The head master was Mr. Robinson, I think.

  5. Do you want a comment about Stormy Corner. I was an evacuee in 1940 and I attended the Endowed School. The Teachers were Miss Turner, Miss Fell (I believe) and Mr. Beck was the headmaster.

  6. I was at Crow Orchard school in the late 70′s early 80′s and Miss Valentine was there then, she must have been part of the fixtures, i remember her flying slipper and chalk duster…..lol (she used to throw them at you if you were talking during a lesson).

  7. i was at Endowed for a few years from 1967-1969 (Approximately). I remember Mr Robinson as head master, Mrs Valentine (Scary) I have fond memories of my time there and recently had an impromptu tour of the school from the present head mistress as i was in the area. I would really like to contact anyone who was there around the same time if anyone remembers me?

  10. My aunt and uncle lived at Stormy Corner, Jimmy and Clara Thompson. They had a smallholding on the corner with pigs and chickens. We used to visit in the 1960s until they had to move out due to the new town.
    My dad just told me a story about racing pigeons at Stormy. Apparently the people used to open their front and back doors and the pigeons used to fly through the houses to get to their sheds! That’s taking a shortcut to the extreme!
