Tony,

Where was the Blakesley Arms? It is very familiar but I just can't place it.

The other two I remember very well, my best friend lived down the road at the side of the William, in fact, so that I could get married at St Micheals in Road I had to use her address in Greenhill Grove.

All the best

Irene

It was right next door to Manor Park Station Irene. Smile
I was a choir boy at St Michaels in the early 60's!
Greenhill Grove as I remember it has long gone....I used to get my short back and sides at the barbers there.
I also recall the shop on the corner known as 'The Old Curiosity Shop' and the scrap yard halfway down the Grove itself.

Tony I remember now as I started at the Co-operative Sorting Office in Whitta Road in 1958.

Were you still a choir boy there in 66 as I have a photograph taken coming out of the church with the choir boys forming a guard of honour.
