Anyone got any photos of Maden Street, Church before most of it was pulled down. My grandparents and mother and four sisters lived there- the Stokes family.

Re: Chuch Kirk Early 1960s

I moved into the Thorn Inn on St James Road in January 1967 and lived there until 1979. My Mum and Dad were Joyce and Joe Smith who ran the pub. I remember many of the names mentioned on this thread and have great memories of living there. Its good to see that the Thorn is still a pub to this day!

I used to work at Naylers from 1959 until about 1968. My grandmother lived in Kirk Road opposite the factory. Canít remember what the factory was.

Re: Chuch Kirk Early 1960s

The factory in Kirk Road was Mastabar Mining Equipment, plus there was also a company called NGN Ltd, in the same building. They made high vacuum equipment, whilst Mastabar made pit props for the mining industry. The site has now been demolished and a new housing estate is now on the site. Both firms owned by J H Fenner of Hull.
