Heaton Norris Memories

About Me

I was born at number three Wilmslow Court and moved to Reddish not long after as far as I know before moving back to live in Heaton Norris at 24 Longsight Street where I spent most of my childhood. I am one of a large family of eight and remember living next to Huxley's corner shop. I also remember Finch's shop not sure what street, I also remember Nellie and Nora's sweet shop on Brunswick Street but I think it may have been actually called Singleton's?

I attended Christ Church school and left in 1964, which is also the year we moved away from Heaton Norris.

Some of the people I remember are, Jimmy Whelan, Jimmy Bailey, Derek White, Billy White, Kenny Hester, Alan Docherty, John and James Bohanna, Mr Wisbech who lived off Ardwick Court, known as the 'Big Yard'.

I also remember Bardsley's ice cream van which was horse drawn, as well as Levaggis, ice cream van and Meschias ice cream van as well.

I can also recall Bennett's butchers and Clarks chip shop on Heaton Lane, as well as Jepson's newsagents on Brinksway Road and Denton's newsagents on Travis Brow.

I remember standing outside the Railway pub at the top of George's Road collecting a penny for the guy.

Phil first let me say how wonderfull it is to hear from your mum & dad.You are so blessed to have them with you in their nineties.I remember your mum, honestly in my mind like yesterday,a little very petite lady.most of all a very happy smiling face.honest that is the truth.Cant rermember dad perhaps he was always out working,sorry. My mum dad &brother Dave sadly passed away some years ago,but loved them so much they never leave my mind..Laurie used to work for Cheshire sterilised I remember him delivering milk to huxleys;used to be Kirkups next to your house.I think your Beryl on occasions played with my cousin Pat Bowen who lived with us on occasions.Assk L aurie if he remembers Syd{Percy}Clarkes gang,he also worked at Cheshire sterilised,they all used to run round the streets with black cloaks on.I remember all the names and more,but will have to go for now as im getting the evil eye. GREATdays regards Eddie
