If anyone can recognize any of the people in the photographs on this page or has any information on the Thrybergh Wheelers Club please contact me on the email at the foot of the page.


In the late 19th century and onward many clubs were formed where people could participate together in hobbies of mutual interest. This also happened in Australia It was the start of a new era, previously belonging to a club was something that the rich did, not the working man. Suddenly there were Banjo and Mandolin clubs or clubs for other musical instruments, sewing clubs, Harmonic Societies, Boys Brigades, you name it, if your interest was studying how long it took for the froth to dissipate from the top of your beer, there was more than likely a club for it. Thrybergh amongst other things had its Wheelers Club, and has you can see from the photo above for a small area there were quite a lot of members of all age groups.

One of the founding members was a young Fred Kelly who can be seen above with a big happy grin on his face riding a Push Bike [ borrowed from Siddalls in Rotherham ] down Whinney Hill in a May Day Parade. That's right no handle bars on Fred's Bike just a steering wheel, and just look at the width of the tyres. The other photo is of members riding past Fosters on Whinney Hill and once again Siddalls provided some unusual bikes this time Penny Farthings.
