I spent most of my childhood in Barnsley.Like you, I attended Barnsley Girls\' High School, spending 7 very happy years there. It was fantastic to find your site and browse through the photos. Since the death of my parents, I\'ve had no reason to go back so it was lovely to go down memory lane and see all the familar places. Many thanks.

Hi Mary well done on your web site I think you\'ve captured Barnsley beautifully. I came on your web site to look for pitures of locke park tower preferable one took from the top looking out. From the age of about 7 to about 10 I used to have dreams about being locked in the tower and being seriously abused. I think it was some time in or around the war. I don\'t know which one but in my dream I was looking out at the top and Barnsley was full of fields all the modern buildings that stand today were not there. I\'m writing this firstly to say well done, secondly to appeal to everyone who visits this site. If anyone genuinly has any information about a murder or suicide of a woman in the Locke Park Tower with long blonde hair aged about 18 to 30 wearing a white dress of some sort in either the first or second world war could you please contact me at my email address would be much appreciated. Athough the dreams lasted about 3 years they will haunt me the re

What a wonderful trip down memory lane! I was born and raised at the bottom of Worsborough Common, Barnsley, as were my parents,(it\'s in the blood), and was looking for information on the Clayton family, and stumbled upon your web site. Do you remember the two men who used to shout \"Green un\", outside Barnsley bus station?
I also had an uncle who owned the newspaper shop on Sheffield Road.

Hi Kev, I just emailed you this site, but see you have already found it.
Thanks again Mary.

Hi there,

I was doing some research on the Battle Of Monte Cassino when I stumbled on your sight. I needed to find out the wording of the leaflet dropped over the abbey to warn of its impending destruction, and lo and behold there it is on your site in Italian and English - just what I was looking for!
I had a stickybeak at the rest of your site and it\'s very interesting - well done. I liked your father\'s letters home from Italy and the story of his unruly hair and the headmaster during his schooldays.
The site\'s a great glimpse into everyday life in the UK in the 40s and 50s, a valuable personal history - congrats again!
Regards
Matt

Hello Mary\n\nWe have just returned from Barnsley after a great week at Wortley Hall where we made many friends.\n \nVisits to Canon Hall, Penistone and Langset really took me back a long way.\nI remember a trip to the moors with the Yorkshire Tractiion Social Club in the 1930s. Things have changed a lot since then but it must still be one of the most beautiful scenic areas of the UK.\n I still get great pleasure reading your web pages, thanks to the time you have spent in putting it together.\n Regards to all my old friends on site.\n\n Hope you and yours are keeping well\n\n Jack Richardson ex Kingstone.\n\n\n\n Jack\n\n

Hello Mary,\n Having looked briefly through your site, and reading some of the letters from your guestbook you should be really proud and I fully agree with all the compliments that have been bestowed upon you. My wife and I have recently moved to New Zealand to spend some time with our son and granddaughters. Like you I lived in Lundwood 10 Friars Rd( Burton Grange the POSH side!!) and remember the canal bursting it\'s banks and the flooding that followed. I also went to Littleworth school I will enclose a school photo of the cricket team, hopefully someone may recognize themselves, I can recall some of the names but alas forgotten some. Anyhow keep up the excellent work and I shall continue to visit your site and recall some very happy memories in and around Barnsley. Many thanks Trevor Brown

Hi, I have just been browsing through some of your web pages. They are really well thought out and interesting. Also the music is good.\n I left Kexborough about twenty years ago when my husband started working at Riccall mine near Selby. Its great living in Selby but you never forget the place you were born and brought up. I went to Darton High School and worked for a few years at Brook Motors, Barugh Green where I had many nice colleagues and friends. Anyway once again thanks for the web pages. It will be great to keep checking them out. HAZEL \n

Even though some of the places, names of people are new to me, just being \'in Barnsley\' brings back such happy, warm memories.

What an interesting site.One of the most tragic accidents happened at the Old Oaks Colliery in Barnsley in 1866 when the explosion, in the pre christmas \"bull week\" caused the greatest loss of life in England since the battle of Culloden. The accident brought out the best in men and the monument on Kendray Hill commemorates -not the men lost in the explosion - but the rescuers who went into the still burning pit and were themselves killed.With over 300 men and boys still in the pit the shafts were fillede to starve of oxygen. I have been unable to ascertain if the bodies were ever recovered. The catastrophe was of such magnitude that even Queen Victoria sent a note of condolence to the mine owners at the loss of their mine ! Little seems to be known now of this valour, even in Barnsley. which is a great pity. Perhaps you could include a piece on your site. Regards - Peter

Hi there, I am the sister of Marlene Fenton. She has sent your site on to me.It looks as if it going to be a most interesting one. I was born in Worsbourough Dale. Not seen any photots\' from down there or the Brig. Would love to though, if someone could come up with some. I too live in Australia now, but still class Barnsley as home. Memeories you cannot take away. As they say you can take the girl out of the place, but you cannot take the place out of the girl. Great site I will continue to browes though it, Thanks\'.

Mary,
I\'d just like to say how much I have enjoyed reading your site & well done!
I was born & raised in Wilthorpe, last address was Queens Drive, & same age as you. I could relate personally to many of the events you described & places you visited. I left Barnsley in mid 60\'s & unfortunately have not been back since then but intend to do so when I return to UK permanently. I do not have any family souvenirs left of my time in Barnsley so your pictures of the area evoked many memories.
best regards,
Geoff Brown

I was brought up in Ward Green and I have a keen interest in trams also. I enjoyed your article on the Barnsley trams. However, Barnsley had two tramways, as well as the Barnsley & District (later Yorkshire Traction)system, there was also the Dearne District Light Railway, opened in 1924, which ran from the former Alhambra cinema on Doncaster Road, to Stairfoot, Wombwell and Wath then with branches to Thurnscoe, Manvers and Swinton. This tramway, the last built in the UK until the Manchester Metrolink opened in 1992, lasted just 9 years.

However, one of the trams still survives to this day, in use as a summer house near to Penistone. If you would like me to send you a photo, please Email me.

Hi Mary,
A wonderfully evocative web site for me. I left Barnsley in 1948 aged 11. Thats a long time ago and I\'ve lived in many places since but early memories of growing up, first on Upper Sheffield Rd., then at Queens Gardens in Gawber are quite vivid.
I finished up in sunny Florida, the climate\'s better but Barnsley is the place where I had Grandparents and about a dozen aunts and uncles, the place I still think of as home.
Three years ago my wife and I drove about 70 miles with my 94 year old mother to attend Mass at Holy Rood. It looked the same as it did 50 years earlier but sadly the familiar faces were gone!
We may not get back to Barnsley again but your website will get family vists.
Thanks!

Mary,

I love your website! Your little town looks very warm and charming.

Please note the change to my email address. I finally got high speed internet service. Now the ISP tells me if I would buy a newer faster machine I would really see a major difference in how fast I could surf the net. There is always just one more thing that you have to do to make everything work right, I swear there is no end to it. Regardless of that I am happy with it just the way it is my internet speed went from about 31-36K to over 775K that is about 25 times faster. So, to downlad something that would have taken 25 minutes before can now be done in one minute.

Thanks for your support with Wendell and his whining about all the war stuff. So far he has made 2 or 3 post over my comments. I think he needs to get a life and I still believe that messages like that do not help to foster the warm, comforting and supportive type of community that we are trying to build for all those in need.

A pleasure as always to get one of your emails and I look forward to your call. When I get my PC put back the way I had it before the internet installers got hold of it, I will spend some more time looking at your delightful website. Come to think of it, it has the appearence of the kind of place that those in need of peace would like to come to. Maybe Wendell should take a look, he just might learn something about grace, elegance and style, all are qualities that you are blessed with.

God Bless
Dennis D.

Hello Mary Lipscombe

I have been tracing the family history recently, due to my father passing on. His name was David Thomas Lipscombe, he lived and died in Invercargill New Zealand at age 78. Most of our relatives live here in NZ or in australia. I was wondering where the Lipscombe family (thatyou are part of) originated, and if there are connections to New Zealand in there. The earliest records we have are of a marriage of John Lipscombe to a girl surnamed Holland in the 1840\'s.

Research can drive you crazy! So many leads in so may directions. However, we have had trouble finding out about the Lipscombes pre-NewZealand, and would appreciate any help.

Cheers

I found your website while browsing through Barnsley sites Last Saturday evening (4.10.03). I have worked my way steadily through your families story and found it very interesting and amusing. It has brought back memories of my childhood, though my childhood was in the sixties and seventies. But many of the places you cover i know. Thankyou for entertaining me for a couple of days.

I love to see pictures and read about Barnsley, and yours was one of the best.

Thankyou Carol.

Dear Mary,

Thankyou for your E-Mail, (6.10.03). Just to add to my e-mail, that my Partner, Barrie Sedgwick\'s Grandfather and Grandmother owned Sedgwicks Corner Shop, on the corner of Westgate and Sackville street, opposite the tin factory and I was wondering if you remembered them when you were young. They had to move up Worsbrough Common when the Streets had to be demolished. There first names were Eva Sedwick and i think Alfred.

Thanks you again for a brilliant site, Carol Cureton

It was nice to see the old photographs

My father came from Barnsley, one of 9. His father (g. father ?) moved there some time in C19. I was \"googling\" for my grandfather and your site came up. Jesse James Hammond, pictured with the trams was my g. father and his son Jesse, also pictured, was my father\'s brother. I still have family up there, but my father, the last to go, died 21.9.03, the last of the bamily of his generation. I\'ve run off the three photos of him and will send them to my cousins.

Many regards,

I really enjoyed your site. It is great to see the pictures of Barnsley as it gives me a feel for what the place is like. My family on my Dad\'s side are all from Barnsley - Wades, Walshaws, Croppers & Caffreys - and I am researching my family tree so it\'s great to see where they came from!! I did visit once when I was very small but remember very little.

You have inspired me to come & visit the place when I have some spare time!!
