    happy memories indeed. I have to say when I danced at the pictures not to many kids were happy to see this tap dancing fool, I sometimes had a friend with me and I think her name was June Lowe. did you ever row on Markeaton lake in the old fashioned row boats, I fell in once. did you ever go to Markeaton culvert, I did and yet it always frightened me. I was a very quiet child and so that's possibly why nobody remembers me. does anyone remember having to go to the Skegness childrens home, I had to go due to being very nervous but it was a horrible experiance and only made me worse than I was before I went. I still do consider my childhood as the good old days

    Do you have any photos of the mill William Addison worked at, I have found he lived at the Manor House, which is mid way between the old water mill and wind mill both now gone. Or photos of William Addison? When his wife died he moved and became a Baker with his son. I am the village Archivist and would love to know more about the miller and his life.

    Only just discovered your site. Absence of transport meant I stayed local to the west midlands.
    1968-69 coffee bar in walsall the Del Rio, with the most fantastic juke box. Was 15 at the time, soon I was discovering clubs all over the area. In Walsall There was the George Hotel,later to be shut and reopened as the 'Femina', never the same again, the Caves, the Cavern, the Speakeasy,........etc.
    In Brum, Barbarella's and Rebecca's. No such name as 'northern soul' then of course. But my favourite place was the Catacombs in Wolverhampton, Great DJs like Alan S and the late Bob Crocker not to forget Blue Max. main regret is that getting married, fatherhood etc etc etc I lapsed and lost touch with the scene, still had all my sounds though, bet they're worth something now.
    1989, went to a Catacombs Reunion in Wolverhampton and heard so many records that I'd not heard before, including Frank Wilson, and when it came on there was a flood of people onto the floor, and i said to my mate, "don't remember this one."
    I now know people of about my age (56) who never stopped going and I hear tales of places like the mecca and casino and wish I'd experienced those places.
