A Mile of Penny’s Can anyone remember in the 40s, A Mile of Penney’s, put on the causeway edge from Cudworth Bridge to Cudworth Hotel, by the people of Cudworth, and the proceeds went to the war. When we were at school in the war years, we took our gas masks to the back of the old co-op on Barnsley Road, for checking and repair. Mr G Bean - Cudworth

Pancakes with Mexican Stuffing Serves 4 Preparation Time:- 1 hour 30 minutes Cooking Time:- 30 minutes Oven:- Preheat to 190ºC (375ºF, gas mark 5) 8oz (225g) plain flour 2 eggs, size 2, lightly beaten ¾pint (425ml) skimmed milk 1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed 1lb (450g) tomatoes, skinned and chopped 1 level teaspoon cumin seeds 2 teaspoons tomato purée 120z (340g) cooked red kidney beans 4oz (115g) cooked black-eyed beans 4 teaspoons corn oil Greaseproof paper squares for layering pancakes 4oz (115g) grated reduced-fat Cheddar cheese Flat-leaf parsley sprigs to garnish 1) Stir the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the eggs. Whisk the eggs into the flour, adding milk little by little to form a thick, smooth batter. Stir in the rest of the milk, pour the batter into a large measuring jug, cover and leave to stand for 30 minutes. 2) Sim m er the onion, garlic, tomatoes, cumin seeds and tomato puree in a uncovered saucepan for about 15 minutes, until the onion is tender and the mixture slightly thickened. 3) Mash all the beans roughly in a

large bowl, then stir in the tomato mixture. 4) Heat ½ teaspoon of the oil over a moderate heat in a nonstick frying pan 8in (20cm) in diameter. Pour in an eighth of the batter and run it round the pan to coat the base. Cook for 2-3 minutes and when it is opaque on the surface and lightly browned underneath, flip it over with a fish slice. Cook the other side for 2 minutes until golden. Tip the pancake onto a lightly oiled plate, with the side cooked first underneath. Put a piece of greaseproof paper on top. Make 7 more pancakes in the same way. 5) Spoon a share of filling onto the top pancake in the pile, roll it up and put it seam down in a greased shallow overproof dish. Fill the other pancakes and put them in a dish. 6) Sprinkle the Cheddar over the pancakes. Cover the dish and cook in the heated oven for ten minutes, then uncover and cook for another 20 minutes, until drowned on top. Serve the pancakes garnished with parsley sprigs and accompanied by a light, leafy salad. You can make the pancakes a day in advance and instead of filling them, wait until they are cold, wrap them in polythene bag and store in the refrigerator. T om ato and bean filling, well flavoured with garlic, onion and cumin seeds, gives these cheesetopped pancakes their spicy Mexican character.

I have read your No18 magazine with much interest, as I lived in Jackson Street, Cudworth for 21 years, I have many happy memories. Does anyone remember Joe Wilson who lived in Jackson Street? He was the fish man, who owned a big blue van, and went round the village selling fish. Also I remember every Friday night the Pea & Pie coming into the street, ringing his bell, and shouting hot Peas & Pies, they were delicious. I remember the children in the street playing games round a gas lamp. The lamp was outside the front door of a lady called Mrs Sands, who shouted at us for making too much noise, and threatened to fetch the Police. I attended Snydale Road Nursery, the teacher was called Miss Dodd. On an afternoon little camp beds were put out for us, and we would have our afternoon nap. Miss Turpin was Headmistress, the infant teachers were Mrs Richards, Miss Grudas, Miss Allen, Mrs Holdsworth and Miss Doughty. I then moved to Pontefract Road Juniors.



used to make tea for the staff at lunch time, when the lunch break was over, we had to go and wash all their dirty cups up (I don’t remember how we came to get the job). I then moved to Cudworth Secondary Modern School, which has sadly been pulled down, as it was such a lovely building. I also was a member of the Ebenezer Chapel. I remember the Anniversary’s which we had each year. Mrs Smith was organist, and Mr Sterton was Preacher. At Whitsuntide, all the local Chapels used to have a whit-walk around the village. The May Queen and attendants would ride on a lorry, which was decorated, then all the children would follow, we would than have a service in Cudworth park.

Ebenezer Chapel Sunday School Queen.

T he Headm aster then was Mr Moorhouse, Mr Fieldsend, then Mr Beardshall. The teachers were Miss McPartlin, who wore a dark green overall, her hair was put in a bun, and she wore glasses, Mr Marshall, Mr Noble, Mrs Arnold, Miss Earnshaw, who could really shout, Miss Price, and Mr Buckle. I remember if anyone had been in trouble, they were made to stand under the clock in the hall, then all knew that they had been naughty.

Does anyone remember ‘The Happy Gang Show’, our dancing teacher was Mollie Max. Every year we would give a concert, which was held in the old

C hoc o la te On my weekly shopping trip I piled my trolley high With beans, eggs, bread, & toilet rolls, And steak & kidney pie, Then, as I turned a corner To my horror & surprise, This HUGE, ENORMOUS CHOCOLATE BAR, Leapt up before my eyes Like in a SCI-FI Movie It aquired a nuclear glow, I could almost hear it humming, But I stood still & told it ‘NO!’ I will not buy you chocolate bar, There’s no way I will be snared, Begone with you temptation, Then I virtually paid. Back home with all my shopping, Instantly regretted My former strength of character, For my appetite was whetted, I rifled through the vegetables, But carrots can’t compete With caramel & chocolate When one’s looking for a treat, I ate some breakfast cereal And cocoa from the tin, With a tablespoon of treacle To thus compound my sin, By then, I’d eaten twice the calories With which chocolate bars are crammed, So the next time I’m in Safeway’s I’ll just buy it & be damned.

A Story of a Nativity Play—T aken from Shirley Valentine By Willy Russell Well, when Brian learned he'd got the part of Joseph he was made up with himself. All the time he's rehearsing' this nativity play his behaviour is fantastic; the headmaster's made up with him. I'm made up with him, the teachers are made up with him. An he's made up with himself. He's practisin', every night i n his room.Well, the day of the show, I got down to the school, the play started an' it was lovely, y'know, all the little angels come on an' they all have a sly little wave to their mams. Then it was our Brian's entrance; he comes on an' he's pullin' this donkey behind him - it's like this hobby-horse on wheels. 'An perched on top of it is this little girl, takin' the part of the V irgin Mary an' she's dressed beautiful, y'know, her mother's really dolled her up to be the part. An' she's givin' a little wave to her mam. So Brian gives the donkey a bit of a tug because he's takin' it dead serious an' he doesn't believe they should be wavin' to their mams. He's up there, he's actin' like he might win an Oscar - y'know he's mimin' givin hay to the donkey an' he's pattin' it on the head. Well, the headmaster turned round an' smiled at me. I think he was as proud of our Brian as I was. Well, Brian gets to the door of the inn and he goes '''knock, knock, knock' an the little Innkeeper appears. Our Brian starts, 'We are wea ry travellers on our way to Bethlehem an' my wife is havin' a baby an' we need to rest for the night at the inn.' So the little feller playin' the Innkeeper pipes up: 'You cannot stay at the inn.' An' then our Brian is supposed to say somethin' like; 'Well, we must go an' fi nd a lowly cattle shed an' stay in there.' Then he's supposed to go off pullin' the donkey an' the Virgin Mary behind him. But he didn't.

Well, I don't know if it's the V irgin Mary, getting' up our Brian's nose, because she's spent the whole scene wa vin' to her mother, or whether it was just that our Brian suddenly realized that the part of Joseph wasn't as big as it had been cracked up to be. But whatever it was, instead of goin' off pullin' the donkey, he suddenly turned to the little Innkeeper an' yelled at him: 'Full up? Full up? But we booked!' Well, the poor little Innkeeper didn't know what day of the week it was. He's lookin' all round the hall for someone to rescue him an' his bottom lip's beginnin' to tremble an' our Brian's goin', 'Full up? I’ve got the wife outside, waitin' with the donkey. She's expectin' a baby any minute now, there's snow everywhere in six foot drifts an' your'e tryin' to tell me that you're full up?' Well, the top brass on the front row are beginnin' to look a bit uncomfortable - they're beginnin' to turn and look at the headmaster an' our Brian's gi vin' a perfect imitation of his father, on a bad day; he's beratin' anthin' that dares move. The little Innkeeper's lip is goin' ten to the dozen an' the V irgin Mary's in floods of tears on the donkey. Well, the Innkeeper finally grasps that the script is well out of the window an' that he has to do somethin' about our Brian. So he steps forward an' he says, 'listen mate, listen! I was only jokin'. We have got rooms really. Y'can come in if y'want.' An' with that the three of them disappeared into the inn. End of the nativity play an' the end of our Brian's actin' career. Me an' our Brian, we sometimes have a laugh about it now, but at the time I could have died of shame. It was all over the papers: 'Mary And Joseph Fail To Arrive In Bethlehem.' I was ashamed.

St John the Baptist – Parish Church – Cudworth Things are moving along nicely at St John’s. The work on the new roof is progressing well, and looks good. People have been kind in supporting our fund raising, and some who live away from Cudworth have sent us donations. We are grateful for all help received, but we still have a long way to go, to achieve the target. Our Priest, Father David, has been made the Priest in Charge, of Lundwood Parish, in addition to his Ministry here. We are so proud of all the hard work he does. This year has been happy for St John’s and we now begin to look

towards Advent and our preparation for the Holy season of Christmas. The service times will be published in the local press, and our Sunday Notice Sheet. We would love to welcome you to anything we do at St John’s, worship and leisure. The world has suffered so much sorrow and tragedy, and is in need of many prayers, to help it return to peace and tranquillity. May we play our part in truly putting Christ, back into Christmas. Love and prayers and all good wishes from all of us.

Reader from New Zealand Thank you so much for a great little magazine which was sent on to me by a dear friend, Dorothy Fenn. The photographs were mostly after my time but familiar names and place names sparked old memories. By the same post I received a report on the Millennium Re-union of Barnsley Girls' High School so had a week of wallowing in nostalgia. But "Chewin 't' Cud" is much more than a nostalgia trip; there is an increasing interest in digging up our ancestors, litera lly and m etaphorically, and these local publications can often furnish relevant information to flesh out bare facts as my late husband and I found when we were researching his family history. I hope the folk of Cudworth will continue to write down their memories of days gone by and keep their magazine alive. One of my enduring memories is of attending the Welfare Clinic as a young Mum. It was held on a Wednesday at St. George's Hall, close by the top Co-op; an event we looked forward to with pleasure and prepared for with pride. The pram was washed and polished and furnished with fresh covers, most of them made by loving Grandmas' hands. Baby was bathed and dressed in his/her best as was Mum, determined to outshine her peers. There was a great deal of friendly, and some not-so-friendly rivalry! At the hall prams were left at one end and babies taken to a side room to be undressed as we sat on low, nursing chairs and placed clothes in the

wicker baskets provided. Some Mums proudly 'held out' their babies to perform in the tiny potties and smiled pityingly on those not potty-trained Mums, that is!! Then came the allimportant bit of weighing, measuring, checking milestones and a general once-over including "Do you need to see the Doctor, dear?" It was a wonderful service and gave young mothers a lot of confidence as well as ensuring that the little ones were checked on a regular basis and problems detected early. It also meant that any signs of neglect or abuse were caught early! Once the babies were dealt with they were tucked up in prams whilst the mothers purchased their supply of Ostermilk or other milk powder, orange juice, Vitamin supplements etc. at a reduced price. Then it was time for a cuppa and a good gossip plus a lot of bragging about the brilliance of our respective offspring. It was all good fun and made a pleasant break from the daily round of nappy-washing and other mundane chores. Some of us even continued on to have lunch together and make a day of it. Mums today don't seem to enjoy their babies in quite the same way we did and I think they miss out on a lot by handing them over to others during those all too brief early years. I remember Clinic days with fondness and, although my two Kiwi babies had the benefit of 'Plunket', a similar welfare service, it was much more formal with none of the camaraderie Story continues on page 13

of St. George's Hall! I wish you and your magazine well and enclose these few "Home Thoughts from Abroad" to show that time and distance really do not change the way one's heart feels. Almost fifty years ago we left our Yorkshire home To settle in this far-off land the Kiwis call "Godzone' Parting was painful from all we held dear,' Excitement was tinged with a smidgin of fear. At first it seemed impossible, this topsyturvy land; The people here were kind enough but didn't understand That homesickness isn't a matter of will, Nor is it cured by taking a pill! But barbecues and carols and picnics on the shore Instead of freezing hands and feet and crowded Christmas store Became as familiar as snow once had been.

If we wept for the old days we did it unseen. As years went by we came to love this country fresh and fair; We loved the clean, green empty miles en route from here to there. The lakes and the mountains, the rivers and bush, The casual people refusing to rush. But deep inside there ever dwelt an ache for what had gone; Storrs Mill Wood and Carlton Fields, Peg's Orchard and the Pond. Too late now to attempt to go back Yet now and again I just want to pack And return to the place where my memories were. It was HOME - mucky Cud'orth - I wish I was there! Yes! I know it is no longer "mucky Cud'orth" for I've been back a few times and seen the changes but in my young days it most certainly was 'mucky'!

My schooldays of the 50’s and 60’s Enclosed are a few memories from my childhood in Cudworth during the fifties and sixties, for future edition of your most appreciated magazine. I have all nineteen copies, which have kept us highly entertained. I live in Essex now but I pop back to Barnsley now and again. Keep up the good work. Patricia story A relative kindly sends me Chewin 'T' Cud each time it is published. "You ought to write sommat for it” he said 's ommat about growing up in Newtown". For me that was almost 50 years ago. But where do I start? Does he mean like my school days - I hated going to school. Some of the teachers I remember well, especially Miss Turpin. Her hair never changed, nor did her shoes. I used to think how old fashioned those shoes were! They were round toed, small heeled with a bar across the instep and fastened with a button. Then – horrors - a few years ago, that same style of shoe became fashionable. Even more horrible - I bought a pair!!! They turned out to be the most comfortable shoes I had ever worn! Miss Turpin was a lady who never forgot our daily prayers and always said a phrase from the Bible at the end which was "Suffer little children to come unto me". We always remembered to say that at home as well to the point my brother Graham, when asked who said 'Suffer little children to come unto me?' his reply would confidently be 'Miss Turpin I remember too some of the teachers at Birkwood Infants when it first opened, Mrs Spink, Mrs Glover, Miss Crudas, Miss Dodson, and Mrs Richards. I only remember good times there, a bit different

though when I got to Snydale Road Junior School. Discipline was far sharper here, Mrs Sinclair scared me to death! I had difficulty in understanding her strong Scottish accent, but I did enjoy her country dancing lessons. Some of the other teachers which spring to mind at Snydale Road were Miss Evans, Miss Robinson to become Mrs Marsh, Mr White, Miss Lappage, Mrs Sutcliffe and Miss Williams, not forgetting Mr Brazier who was Headmaster at the time. My name was always a cause of concern for me but its easy enough - Patricia - but so many people would try and call me Pat. I remember my mother correcting people when they called me Pat in front of her. One day I was called Pat by Mrs Sinclair and remembering my mother, I said 'But my name’s not Pat it's Patricia!' She promptly made me stand outside the classroom door as punishment for what seemed like ages. (Annoyingly, people still want to call me Pat). Raymond Geeson obviously did not like Mrs Sinclair. He used to lead her a merry dance and one day had us all in fits of laughter as he ran around the notice boards at the top end of the hall with Mrs Sinclair in hot pursuit – this went on for some minutes – he was far too quick for her and she couldn’t catch him! Sometimes I would be playing on the Green with a gang of girls when over the rooftops came the rasping tones of my mother shouting my name “PAT – RI – CIA” emphasizing each syllable into a crescendo with the last. I would wait until she had shouted a dozen or so times before someone would say “Your mum is shouting you”. “Yes, I heard her the first time” I would say before jogging back home. It was even

better when I was playing up Jinny Lane, I could still hear her shout. It was great to come home hours later and say “I never heard you mam”. The shop at the bottom of Whitecross Road had a Beech Nut chewing gum machine on its outside wall (they don’t make it now). Every fourth turn, 2 packets would drop out instead of one. How exciting it was trotting to the machine with a penny to see if it would be lucky this time – and I was sometimes! Cudworth Festival Day in the park was an annual event and how exiting it was. Lots of things going off – music, dancing, flowers, knitting, vegetables, it seemed everyone would make or grow something to enter as there were prizes for the best ones. Imagine my delight when I was about 11 or 12 to find I had won second prize with the pillow cases I had made and embroidered on the edges. I’d never embroidered anything before so I was really proud. But the memory I hold most strongly was the appearance of Mr Barnard, a farmer from Low Cudworth who brought his tractor and trailer out occasionally selling vegetables

quite cheaply. My mother used to buy cauliflower’s which cost only one shilling for five. As you can image, we had to eat them all! It wasn’t long before I got an aversion to cauliflower and promptly refused to eat any more! It was probably in the region of twenty years before I, ate cauliflower again. Even to this day, its not my favourite vegetable. What grand days they were playing outside games such as Hopscotch, Whip and Top, Two Balls and Skipping – oh what a lovely time I had chanting all the phrases and poems which accompanied those games – All in together girls, never mind the weather girls……. Salt Pepper, Vinegar, Mustard….. Cobbler Cobbler mend my shoe, have it done by half past two….. Each Peach Pear Plum………. My own children were never interested in learning the games I played. When I tried to teach my boys how to play two balls they went to school and told the teachers their mum could juggle! All reight Gran? Patricia Allman (nee Taylor of Lunn Road)

To a new abode, a fixed abode!. It is a lenient afternoon of calm in a St Lukes Summer, bright and pleasing weather maintaining a legend the saint gave name to, as a promise it has brought stately pleasure to the month of October. Already, we have found dawn and dusk bring gentle mists to the hollows and lowering clouds embrace hills and moors in coloured days of the Fall. It becomes true Autumn. The land looks good, rising moorland breathing its own brand of beauty like dark wines blend in subtle shades, an attraction, a cause for wonder? Here, at a comfortable nearness to our new home, tall Lime trees about our Parish church host for us a novelty, a well established and busy Rookery, here a culture of birds remain unperturbed by chimes out of the church tower at quarter and hourly regularity, nor in any way are they alarmed by peels and changes, brought in celebrations of the bells, those ready made welcomes of joy on Sunday mornings. We have determined this easy calm belongs to us now, with new lifestyle in this ancient county of Cleveland, within the Northern most end of the North York Moors National Park, beyond Whitby. Only yards away from the village, dark woodland areas, alive with omens of the best of old England, "the deer in the dale, the sheep in the vale", all in keeping with Her old traditions. So, it is true, we are in a new realm where fresh content gives outlook an air of "settle and stay", it holds the same sensation I suspect everyone of us at sometime or another may desire. We are, far away from the urgency of modern urban life. The North Sea shore is minutes away, here is welcome to a plenteous supply of delicacies of the sea, readily available at Staithes when the catches are in!. A two mile worthwhile trip for crab, lobster and fish, fresh as the morning air.

On Westgate, the main street of the old capital of the ancient Kingdom of Cleveland, a twice weekly, old fashioned street market. Guisborough is graced by the surrounding wooded hills and open moorland linked to panoramic views to then continue along the valley of the river Esk. Breathtaking shadow and cameo like silhouette begin with these wide features that is the National Park marking an edge of Charm, all the way to the sea. Down the lane, past Easington church to the green of Grinkle Park, the old manor, is now a settled and appealing hotel, holly and travellers trees as Natures decoration fill hedgerows in anticipation, needing only light of day to express a coming season we will all expect to enjoy in many ways when we close the months of the year. Now at November's gate, St Luke has so far restrained and re-arranged the frost and chill winds that herald onset of Winter. Yet, for the first time since childhood, I have urgent desire to meet the new and coming spread of Winter beauty on a scenic countryside. At our move North, we shared regrets at the doors of old friendships. These will not weaken with our absence, for there is life in friendliness, it contains and confirms dedication to life. We have begun the same process again and find warmth is abundant in this Village too. We look forward to days when Spring will again trim the balance of the year, announcing itself a new presence of hope with reality, racing to be our contentment. To you all in Cudworth, we send wishes with full meaning for the celebrations soon to come, that you will enjoy a Happy Christmas to urge you into a prosperous new Year Ron Gibson Easington-in-Cleveland.

The 50's and 60's — By Gwen Johnson Following the article in the last issue of the magazine I would like to share with you my memories of the 50's and 60's. In the late 50's when I left Brierley Girl's High School I became Head of Statistics at Suba Seal, Staincross. I was a member of the Brierley Group of the Y.H.A. (Youth Hostel Association). Once a month I spent a w eek end walk ing in Derbyshire or the Yorkshire Dales, stopping at a Youth Hostel overnight. We also spent long weekends at Easter and Whitsuntide camping in the lakes or at Ogwen Valley in Snowdonia, Wales, where my tent got blown away in the middle of the night! My friend and I used to save up all year for a 2 week holiday abroad. We went skiing in Norway, climbing in Austria, and the Alps and Dolomites, on a walking tour of Italy and a tour of the Italian Lakes including Venice and Verona. The party that went to Austria met up at Victoria Station and when we got to Salzburg we were met by an Austrian Mountain Guide called Gurther Heigert (really dishy).

He took us up the Hagerer Mountain, where we stayed in a mountain hut. We were surrounded by snow and cloud, it was really fantastic! The air

was so clear. We had to wear dark glasses because of the snow which could have affected our eyes. We passed crosses on the way up the mountain which had been put there to mark the spot where people had been killed in avalanches. Half way up the mountain we stayed in another wooden hut. In the dormitory we had bunk beds and were surprised to find that when we got back for the evening meal there were a group of Boy Scouts sleeping in the bottom bunks - we were on the top bunks. Lots of Hostels in A u st ri a h a d m i x e d sl e e p in g arrangements, but after the surprise of seeing a few male bare bottoms we got used to it. When we came down the mountain into the green valley below we travelled by train and foot all over the area, then back to beautiful Salzburg where we saw Mozart's birthplace, the Opera House and the Castle all lit up at night, really magicial. On our way home we travelled back to Calais by train, through the night, in a compartment with 4 other people. I woke up the next morning to find that I had fallen asleep with my head on the shoulder of the man next to me. He never moved all night (so I was told), I was really touched by this, yet I didn't know the man and I have never met him since. The following year we went skiing in Norway. We went on a Fred Olsen ship from Newcastle to Oslo. It was the worst sea ever and I was sick for 3 days, really terrible! I had never been

skiing before and kept falling down, so I had a lot of bruises. I always remember my holidays abroad with great affection. They broadened my outlook on life and made my life much more interesting. In her article Anne Higgs talked about the music of the 50's and 60's when Elvis was 'King.' Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis were fantastic. I saw Marty Wilde at Wombwell, his big hit at that time was 'Donna', I also

saw Cliff Richard and the Shadows at the Blackpool ABC T heatre, a brilliant concert. But my all time favourite were the Everley Brothers and Peter, Paul and Mary, they were perfection! I think the Beatles were good, the 'Long and Winding Road' being one of my favourite songs along with Cilla Black's 'Alfie.' When you look back there's nothing as good now as the 50's and 60's. We were lucky to belong to that era.

THE SOLDIER – By Rupert Brook If I should die, think only this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England. There shall be In that rich earth a richer dust concealed; A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware, Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam, A body of England's breathing English air, Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home. And think, this heart, all evil shed away. A pulse in the eternal mind, no less Gives somewhere back the thoughts of England given; Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day; And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness, In hearts at peace, under an English heaven. Rupert Brook enlisted soon after the outbreak of the First World War and served with the Royal Naval Division. After fighting at Antwerp, he sailed for the Dardanelles, but died of blood-poisoning on the Greek island of Skyros on April 23rd 1915. He is buried there.

THE JOYS OF FEELING SICK!! By James Clark aged 12 I recently went on a trip to Pleasurewood Hills with the Boys Brigade - what a day. There is so much to do, a huge selection of rides and many other activities. Where to start? The Cannonball Roller Coaster, the Mega Spin, the Magic Mouse, the Classic Pirate Ship - where you actually turn upside down, and your stomach does somersaults all on it's own!!! For the more faint hearted, but perhaps more sensible, there are easier rides. There are boat rides including Aladdin's Cave or, if you really like the 'fast lane' and are in training for formula one, there's go-karting!! If you don't like being turned upside down then avoid Mega Spin because it feels as if all your blood is pouring into your head and that you might explode or fall off the ride!!! On Mega Dance the chairs get spun around whilst the main machine is being lifted up

and down and spun around. This made me feel a bit nervous but a couple of minutes of dizziness later I was fine and really enjoyed feeling sick!! Mega Mouse is really a ride for the daring, it has fast, tight corners which make you feel as if you are about to fall off the rollercoaster. Part way round the ride it starts spinning round and round. When it gets to the corners and it's spinning round it feels as if it is going to go over the edge, but it is quite safe - and brilliant!!! There are chair lifts going across a large deep lake, sometimes they stop and it can be scary looking down at the black deep water, there is a lot of screaming, but it's ok really. There is also a large area of model dinosaurs and a miniature train which takes you to different parts of the theme park. It's a 'brill' place and everyone should go - and enjoy being sick!!!

SOME EARLY HISTORY OF CUDWORTH The village is first mentioned in a deed in 1186, when a gift of meadowland was made to the monks of Monk Bretton by William Stapleton. Further gifts were later made by the Stapleton's to both Monk Bretton and Nostell Priories. As early as the days of Richard 1, 1189, the Stapleton's had a hall and private chapel in the

village. About 1200, the wife of Robert Stapleton and William, her son, made a covenant with John Tyrel, parson of Royston, by which he granted to them permission to have a private chapel in their hall at Nether Cudworth, saving the rites of mother church. The chaplain was also to do fealty to Royston church.

Memories Of Darfield Road Juniors ince becoming interested in football at an early age, I’ve learnt of and seen some very good teams in Cudworth and I have been privileged to have played in the successful sides of Darfield Road Juniors in 1954-55, and 61-62. At all levels of football, comparisons are invariably made between teams past and present, who would have won if it were possible for them to have played each other. Such encounters have been played, but only by courtesy of computers, therefore in reality we shall never know who would have been the victors. I played at Cudworth Modern School for the Under 13’s, 14’s and 15’s as a 12 year old, but after continuing my education at Barnsley Tech, I never figured in schoolboy football again. On leaving school in 1952, I heard there was a youth team down Darfield Road. During a home game, it was with apprehension and excitement that I approached Len Green. Our conversation went something like this; “Can I have a game with you mister?” “Where do you play?” “I play anywhere” Come down next Saturday and bring your boots” The next seven days seemed like an eternity, was it possible that I may play in local league football, after all, I had only featured in arranged kick-abouts in Cudworth Park and the Valley (an area between Firth Avenue and Cudworth Railway Bridge, now filled in during the last three years or so).

I reported outside Darfield Road Club on the Saturday and within an hour fou n d m y s elf in Br oom h ill (W ombwell), for a fixture with Knollbeck Rovers. I listened intently as the team was announced, I hadn’t long to wait, left back, Frank Swift. I’d never played in left position before, but I didn’t care, I was in the team. The pitch was three fields from the road adjacent to the River Dearne, almost a route march. I have no recollection of my performance that day, but as I walked back to the dressing room I felt an arm around my shoulder, “Well played young ‘un, are you coming next week” it was Mike Parkinson, our Centre Forward, “Yes if I’m picked” was my answer. By this time Len Green and Dick T urner ha d f orm e d a gre at managem ent partnership, players were recruited from outside the village, with hopes of forging a side capable of challenging for honours. The most notable acquisition, in my opinion, was Charlie King, from the Doncaster area, he really became the crowds darling. Such was the quality of the players being assembled and the anticipated success, away fixtures attracted supporters that often filled a double decker bus, and many pounds were to be won, during the coming season.
