I went to Wibsey nursery school - Mrs Dobson I think was the teacher and Wibsey Junior School. That was back in 1953 or thereabouts.
My best friend was John Moulson who lived next door with his sisters Barbara and Rita. We climbed every tree in the school yard and I shinnied up the drainpipe to get all the tennis balls that were stuck in the gutter
There was an old mine shaft at the bottom of the field behind the nursery and you could drop stones down the edge where the slab that covered it didn't quite reach.
I lived with grandparents Medley and Edith for some time when my dad Arthur (their son) was ill and again after he died. Their cottage at 63 North Road Wibsey had a shared outside toilet, and I think the house was built in 1768, there were initials and a date over the front door.
