MY OTHER SITES
I was very tempted to rename this page Memory Lane,
it is becoming my favourite page on this site. I would like to express a
sincere thanks to the people below who have shared their memories, and left
the very kind comments you see below. So if you have two minutes to spare,
make an old Thryberghite happy and share some memories of Thrybergh

My memories of living the early part of my life
in Thrybergh are all happy ones. Does anybody else remember the road being
flooded by Foster's shop and all the kids sploshing about in it? The
rippling stream down the hillies with fields full of daisies? Gypsies
scaring us half to death just because they were there? Halcyon days for my
Greetings from sunny Blackpool in Lancashire! I was directed onto your very good website concerning SiIverwood and noticed you wanted Miners names. Here are two for you Rhyse Thomas1924 - 1964 and Michael Shaw1966 - 1969 Michael married Mr Thomas's daughter and they both live here in Blackpool. But like myself still proud of being Yorkshire people being born in God's own Country. Your site is very good, interesting and your connecting pages as well. The Thomas's were Dalton People and I think the Shaw's were as well.
Thank you for a trip around Thrybergh. I am Mr Lilley's daughter and very sad VALE HOUSE was pulled down. I should know you as I bought no 1 School Street. Keep up the good work
Hi John I have enjoyed looking at the St Gerard's
School and Church site, I remember Owen Kavanagh as his mother and father
lived in Parkgate. I was born in 1942 and was Baptised at St Joseph!s
Rawmarsh. My name was Mary Turner. I attended that school and Owens sister
Kathleen Kavanagh, taught there. The Head Mistress in those day was called
Miss Addis. I attended St Bede's senior school from 1953 to 1957.I also
played the organ at St Joseph! Rawmarsh from 1955 up to leaving Parkgate in
1968.I now live in Sheffield and am in St Vincent's Parish. I would like to
say I am please I found your Web Site , it as brought back memories to me .

Daughter of the late :Old Ozzie Wright and the sister of Oswin Arthur Wright (Ozzie): Joseph Wright (Joe) and David Wright (Dave). Also the Daughter In law of Edward Houghton (Eddie) did the Home Coals at Silverwood. Sunnyside has never been the same since Silverwood pit closed During the Strike my mother Agnes wright made bread and Stew and some of the miners going on picket duty would pop in for a quick bite, sad but also good old times. A lot of people knew the Wright Brothers and mi dad.
Hello my name is Luke, I am the webmaster of
the another website about Thrybergh, and I would like to say thank you to
John Doxey for putting my link on this site, and I'd also like to say thanks
for mentioning Steve Stewart, as he was my mentor at school (funded by Aim
Higher) and he is continuing this great work. Very nice site, the attention
to detail and the photos are very good, I especially enjoyed looking at the
pictures of the old junior school in Thrybergh.
Great work John, love reading your history lesson that I can relate to. Waiting for any information on Kilnhurst Colliery.
My Father was Tommy Jackson worked down Silverwood 1916 to 1970 - Lived at 17 Kelvin St Dalton with his Son Joe Jackson. Enjoyed your site very much , well documented I moved to Wincobank to get married in 1957[ still there]
Now living with the softies of the South of England
and showing them what a real graffter looks like. Born and Bred on School
Street in Thrybergh, by the side of the railway line that ran up to
Silverwood Colliery, moved to St Leonards ave in 1969 into flats at the
bottom end by the school field, so it was just a hop to school for me, left
comp in 1974 and went straight to Silverwood as an Apprentice Fitter
(surface then underground) left in 1986 now residing in Bognor Regis in West
Sussex, but even now I still miss my roots and I think I will till the end
of my days.
Hi John, I just want to say thank you for getting back to me and giving me that information over my grandfather. I had no idea he had lived in Ravenfield I guess thats how he and my grandma met she came from Bramly. I was suprise to fine out he had been there since he was 18 years old. Well I just wanted to say thank you so much for your time in replying to me, keep up the great work.
I used to live in Thrybergh in 1950's in Springfield Drive just after the houses had been built then my father came to Smethwick (now Sandwell) My Aunt lived at Park Nook - Pearson's I wonder if Alan Cushworth still lives in Thrybergh. I remember the fair that used to set up on the land opposite the Fullerton Hotel.
Hi, just wanted to let you know that my brother in law Brian Eyre sent us a copy of your paper with the story of Freddy Hartle and the meeting of him and my husband Jim Hill during the war and they still are good friends I must say that Brian keeps us up to date with news of all our friends and relatives keep up the good work kindest regards Flo Hll
Found your web site while researching the Etchells branch of my family. I believe I have a great uncle still, Ezra, still living in Thrybergh. Good web site with interesting information. Thank you from Canada. Your web site is now on my "Favourites" list and will be accessed frequently.
What a fantastic site you have put a lot of work into this. I have lived in Thrybergh all my life till 1994 when I moved to Maltby but my dad still lives on Deer park road.
Hi, I think your web site is fantastic I grew up in a pit house in Sunnyside, I would like to add my Grandfathers name on your miners list. Percy Johnson. Thank you so much,
: 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 in the old family home with his family, while my mother is not far away. We very much appreciate what you have done, and since my wife Diana has been researching our various family histories, will be adding more shortly.
I must just say how interesting the site is. I
was born in Dalton Parva and lived there until 5 years ago when I moved to
Bramley. I attended Thrybergh Comprehensive and spent many years playing in
either Thrybergh (where my grandparents lived) or down the backs where lots
of my school friends lived. My father still lives in the same house in
Parva - actually he was born in said house. It has relived some happy
memories for dad too.
