SUPERB STEAM TRAIN PHOTOGRAPHS

ADDED 19 FEBRUARY 2006

As entered in our visitor book

What a Great site!  I lived in Chequerfield until I was sixteen and have many fond memories of Pontefract. I remember digging for Liquorice root as a boy behind Willow Park School and watching the steam trains go by over Grove Town bridge whilst buying sweets in Ewebanks. Thank you who ever put this site together, I have just spent two hours looking at the old black and white photographs - the steam train pictures were superb.

I recently revisited School Road where I lived in the seventies. and was shocked to see the house I lived in now had a pitched roof, it was flat in my day. Anyway just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work and effort that must have gone into this. By the way, does anyone remember Chequerfield Hospital? it was derelict when I was a boy but we had great fun exploring the building. I cant find any information about it, but I clearly remember walking through the wards as a child with my mates coming across these strange hospital things that were still in there, it was a bit spooky to be honest. Okay, thanks again and please keep this site going - I for one will be a regular visitor.
