1900

 

Photo courtesy of Jonathan DabsMy memory of Whinney Hill is walking down to have my hair cut at Lindsey's hairdressers which was in the group of shops on the left hand side.

 

I also have a memory of sliding down the whole way one winter, as a passenger in the back of a works van. Luckily we did not meet any vehicles trying to get up the hill, though as we neared the bottom a bus turned from Doncaster road, saw us and stopped, which was just as well as we were on the wrong side of the road at that stage.

 

The driver managed to regain complete control near the bottom and we came to a halt facing the shops on the left, just avoiding sideswiping the bus. To the drivers credit [ Joe Butcher ] he kept calm all the way down, which is more than his passengers did I can tell you.

 

 

Harold Barber tells us that the rows of colliery houses on one side of Oldgate Lane were in blocks of 11 dwellings and back in the 1930s were referred to as Whinney Hill, whereas the house on the left of the photo above which were non colliery houses were referred to as Oldgate Lane.
All the pit houses were 'Whinney Hill'. Non- pit houses opposite were 'Old Gate Lane' in those days)
The houses on the left being built right on the boundary of Dalton. The boundary continued up to Fosters shop, dropped away from the road slightly, continued then along the Hilly fields along Hollings Lane and up to Silverwood. Fosters shop was actually in both the parishes of Dalton and Thrybergh, as you walked through the shop you would be crossing the boundary.

 

WHO LIVED WHERE

 

Please note that prior to the Second World War the actual tenant's of the houses below took in lodgers, from the list below unless stated the actual tenant is not certain in any given period.
