MEMORY LANE: horsing around 124 hears ago

Memory Lane: Nottingham Road in Eastwood
Memory Lane: Nottingham Road in Eastwood

No need to worry about the traffic more than 120 years ago as this photo shows.

For the men captured have time to stand with a horse, a foal, a dog and a lamb in the middle of the street.

They are at the top of Church Street in Eastwood in 1890. The tops of the gravestones can be seen in the churchyard just behind the wall.

The man holding the dog is C. Chambers, of Nottingham Road, Eastwood.

Have you got any photos of times gone by in the Eastwood and Kimberley area? If so we would love to feature them.
