    Church Street, Ecclesfield - what do you remember?

    I remember mid to late 60's there used to be a bakery on the right. Used to get a penny bag of buns on the way to the Friday club at Gatty hall.

    This photo has a note attached: Jan 22 Hounds meet at Scarborough The Derwent hounds met at the residence of the amateur huntsman of the pack Mr Arthur Webster, Moor House, Stepney Road. This meeting in glorious weather and a big field. It is a rare event for the pack to meet in town and there was the usual big attendance. The pack came right onto the lawn in front of the house and here is the picture showing them with Kennel Huntsman Fitzpatrick (left), Mr Arthur Webster amateur huntsman and the Master Mr EL Styring. With some of the company behind

    @rover1949 Can't be sure what colour coat, seem to think he had red and green coats. The Boxing Day meet was definitely at Wentworth, I do remember a calendar of meets was released every year so Ecclesfield would definitely be on it.

    My grandfather was master of the Ecclesfield Beagles. The Boxing day meet if I remember was always held at Wentworth. The Rockingham Arms was the meeting place. I've got some old photos if anyone is interested.

    I live in Victoria and once ran into a Blades fan. I supped up and left.

    Joe Cocker

    Can't find how much it sold for. Was on at $7 million then dropped to $5.75 but no record of what it got at auction.
