    When I was looking for information for Herdings because the landowners ie were Chaworth, Foljambe, Roos, and Babbington the early info is in the Nottingham archives under Derby Notts. In earlier times the area was under the Sheriff of Nottingham. So might be worth looking at what you can find in Nottingham catalogues.

    Is that building the same as the Herdings community centre? And are we looking at it from the slope that leads down to the supertram crossing point?

    Hi Nathan My great aunt on my mum's side was Ethel Staniforth, of Shirland Lane in Darnall. Her husband was George Staniforth and they had a son called Paul. I'm afraid I can't be a lot of help, but let me know if there are any more details you need and I will see what I can do. God bless

    For most of the period the farm / estate / manor would be passed on by copyhold, where the manor court records were used to record details as there were limited literate people and secure storage for documents. We are lucky in Sheffield that T Walter Hall has transcribed many of the Court Rolls. I'd guess that the court that administered Herdings was Eckington, and H.J.H. Garratt edited a series of books (volume 5 "Eckington 1964-1804 volume 5 - The Court Rolls, previous volumes dealt with earlier periods). The Local Studies library has volumes 4 and 5 and also a copy of a T Walter Hall book of assorted records including some from Eckington. A visit to the Sheffield Archives could also be productive, for example late 13th century documents reference JC/4/13 deeds from the Jackson collection - charters regarding land in Norton including the manor of Heyridding (manerium del heyridding) includes for example: Charter confirming a grant from Thomas Chaworth knight lord of Norton to John Luterel son of Sir Alexander Luterel, and to Rose his wife, younger daughter of Thomas Chaworth, of the manor of Heyridding (manerium del heyridding) in Norton, which Alice Castelayn had of his gift, with grazing rights in Rohawe and the wood thereof. Witnesses: Sir Thomas de Furnyvall [Sir Thomas de Furnival], Sir Adam de Everingham and Sir Walter de Gaushull knights, Sir William de Fulkyngham then abbot of Beauchamp [Beauchief], Sir Roger de Brailesford then rector of Dranesfeld, John Ayncourt, John de Brymington

    I remember this field and I used to go to the fairs there it did belong to the sports club but they sold it before the houses were built to someone else. I can't ever remember it being used for much else though. My Dad was concert secretary for the club and my Mum played the piano and later the organ there so went from around 1955 .

    I used to play football for Intake Juniors in the mid-late 80s and our meeting place on a Sunday morning was at the Intake Sports Club mentioned here. We had our presentation evenings there, too. And I remember a few bonfires held in the field in the back with pie and peas supper. Recall us coughing up loose change to give someone to go into the Noah's to get a pint that we would pass round! The bloke who ran the football teams lived across the road, first house after the Lo-Cost (as it was then) car park.

    Yes, it is a nursing home now They used to have big bonfires and firework displays every year in the car park. lorry drivers used to bring them skip fulls of wood and rubbish, probably in exchange for letting them park the lorry in the car park overnight while they had a kip!. Until one year in the nineties when the Intake Mob and Frecheville Mob had a big riot. Was on the front page of the star IIRC

    that is the correct club yes, must have renamed it. i know they played some sports indoors, hence the name 'sports' club. there was a little field directly behind the club also over the back of the Noah's. The field i mean is the one to the left of the club as you face it. there are really tall trees around the field. the field is circular in shape. i seem to remember there was some old changing rooms on there so they must have used it as a football field at sometime. if you dont remember the sports club field, do you remember the Noah's Ark bonfire displays?. What about the Barbecues? ahhhh memories

    I'm not quite sure of the location you mean wayneybabes Was Intake social club on Hollybank Road opposite the old Rex Cinema, now the Co-Op car park? If so, where was their field? Was it on the land behind the Noahs Ark?

    Well - It seems there were 2 Spitfires "F22 PK724" & "LF16 TB308" and a Vampire "F1 VF281" at Norton. I've found some chat between Plane buffs. Most of it seems to be about serial numbers and stuff. The general gist (I think) is that one or more may have been used in a film - High Flight (1958). and that they seem to have been moved around, re-painted etc. quite a few times over the years. Here's another photo. This is one of them after it left Norton. http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b202/aer...on-BOB-Sept.jpg Oh no - now it gets worse. I've just been reading on another aeroplane chat forum. It seems there was a mystery spitfire in the afore mentioned film, which could also have been one of the Norton "Spits" (Getting the terminology now) The main filming was done at Cranwell in Lincolnshire but it seems that one of the hangars at Norton may have been used for some of the scenes in the film. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v634/Mar...ht-02-002-1.jpg Still ploughing through serial numbers and all sorts of technical stuff trying to make some sense. I may have bitten off more than I can chew here. - Anyway suffice it to say that "yes there was a Spitfire on the gate at Norton in the 50's." and also a Vampire which I think I remember, but this may be just due to now knowing that it was there. The gate, now blocked by the way, being the main entrance, which at the time was on Norton Lane in the middle of the site where there is now a vehicle pull in. Not the side entrance later used by Driver Training.

    Barkers Pool was one of the original town resevoirs and still runs under the area today. I worked at the Gaumont in the first half of the 1960s and had to check the water levels on a daily basis. During a stage production of the Bruce Forsyth Show the pump controlling the water level failed. The orchestra pit quickly flooded and the band played the first house with their feet in three inchs of muddy water. The show must go on......!
