Norley Hall/ Pemberton memories
Started by: jud178 (208) Report abuse
Just driven through Norley, up Saddleback Rd where i lived up top half of Helvellyn Road turned right past St Johns school, left along Fleet St and down Pemberton. First time in years, what happy memories.

When I was around 16, I went out with a girl who lived at the bottom of Thorburn, just a bit higher up on the right, than the cut through to Kingswood Crescent. She was a 'bonny' blonde girl but for the life of me I can't remember her name. She would now be in her late 60's I am sure she went to Pemberton senior school.
