  5. Hi There is an Admiral chippie on Birley Moor Road Sheffield 12 area. The one at Mosborough is still there.
  6. Hi I went there twice round 1962/63. I went because my dad was ill for quite a long time and it was like a place for children to go for a holiday but not too far from home. Or at least I think that was why. It was great really enjoyed doing different activities every day. I loved it. Can remember doing arts and crafts and other activities and putting on a play at the end of the stay.

    I've just joined this. I went to Brook- by no means posh- and the dinners were always good. I loved the rice pudding !!!
