"WE'ERS THA' LIVE "?

GULLINGWOOD DRIVE.

 

 

 

Taking its name from the area it was built upon Gullingwood Dr is a horseshoe shape around the top outer edge of the housing estate. The whole estate being referred to as the Gullingwood Estate or simply Gullingwood. The estate was built in the early 1950's by the old Rotherham Rural District Council.
Amongst the first occupants were Doreen (ms. Lee) and Jock Ogilvie who moved into number 51 when the houses were first built. Their daughter Jean Pepper writes "Sadly they've both passed on now: it was early 1990s when my mum moved into a bungalow, I can't remember the exact date".
Amongst those first occupiers were Dennis and Molly Jones whose son Michael writes. " I lived in Gullingwood Drive until going to university 1966. My father was Dennis, part of a huge Jones family from Bramley, many of whom worked at Silverwood. My mother Molly appears on your list of Foster's employees, and my brother Trevor still lives there.
