My Time in Stonnall

Although a little before my time as I wasn't born until 1956, this brings back memories and names from my childhood.

I can still remember my grandad George (Bottle) Glover standing for hours on end at the gate outside Elm Cottage where he lived and I grew up.

Come 5pm evey evening, except Sunday, he would go in to have his tea. The would then wait impatiently at the gate until it was just the right time to walk down Main Street to arrive at the Old Swann just as the landlord, Tommy Perry, was opening the doors for the start of the 6pm evening session.

God forbid anyone who sat in Bottle's seat in the Old Swann bar!

I found this fascinating because I lived at North Manor House too from 1971. I lost both of my parents last year and they loved the house so much, so I've decided I'd like to find out as much as possible about the house's history and its place in the life of the village. From what I've read so far from members of this group, it sounds like there are many who might be able to help me with this, and I would very much welcome their support.

I was interested in the reference to The Deep Litter Club in Chesterfield. Where was this exactly and does it still exist as a building today? I think I have a photo showing its interior and a group, The John Barry Seven, posing with the owner of the club, dated around 1963.
