Mrs Wilsons chippie,little Neston

Permalink  
 

I still reckon they were the best chips i ever had when i used to go there if i was at my grandads on bull hill in the seventies.Sometimes i used to take over newspapers that they wrapped the chips in and mrs wilson would give me a greaseproof bag with all the bits of batter out of the fryer in

I remember Lilla's sweet shop Little Neston. I don't know how she ever made a profit as she always gave handsful of free sweets to my kids. 5 of them!! Did you go to Ness Holt school? My eldest Son and Daughter went to Parkgate school then on to Burton Road.
I have a pic somewhere of the Ladie's Day walk. i must see if I can find it. Ruby

I dont go back as far as some of the photos but I lived in Lees Ln from 1938 to1950 ,
I cant remember the name of the school I went to but it was on the way to Ness.
I remember the Chippie on the corner and an ironmongers {I think }on the opposite side leading up to ivy farm,and across the road was an air raid shelter, in which we spent many hours sleeping. As children we made our own entertainment with old prams and dustbin lids,and a bike wheel and a stick. We didnt have to worry about cars because there wasnt any.
