Hi, I am looking to re-locate the air raid shelters on the playing fields of Flixton Junior School. I understand they are now covered over. Could you possibly inform me of the location on the field?
Thanks to Matthew!

Not only covered over but filled in Matthew, which unfortunately means you will find nothing. The one shelter left in tact is also covered now on Flixton Road. It is under the ground at the bus shelter by the clock.
Thanks to David Smith!

Summer Sunday evenings in the Garden of retreat Flixton house, just magical.

After being away for a while, I couldn't help notice the changes to the area whilst strolling down Brook road the other day.

I was in Flixton CC in the late 50,s and remember Brian and Tony Timms his younger brother who was a particular friend of mine.Brian scared the life out of me coming down Mam Tor on the back of his Tandem. He could really handle that bike. Where are you guys now? Syd Morgan, Harrogate, N Yorks.

I remember the ferry behind the Union Inn. We used to hang out there and the ferryman taught me to skull the ferry boat. Once, standing on the bow, waiting to leap ashore and secure the boat, we hit a submerged object and I fell into that wonderful canal. I was in trouble when I arrived home since I was not supposed to go near the canal and it was difficult to disguise where I had been. The ferryman was named Roy Sharrat, I believe. Approximately, 1959.

I remember the shelters well as I lived on Trevor Road as a child and went to both schools. There were 4 air raid shelters at the junior school end of the field and 2 at the infant end level with no 69 Trevor. One of the shelters at the junior end and one at the infants were open to access and so we sometimes played in them. The mounds of earth on top of the shelters were prone to wasps nests and I remember getting stung on the eyelid in 1972. I have a photo of my school class next to one of the shelters taken in 1975 although the quality of the picture is not great. Does anyone else have a photo of the shelters please?
Thanks to Andy Pitt!
