Can anyone in the Rock Hill area in Castleford help me fill in a few memory blanks from my childhood?
I was born in Crawley, Sussex, just before the Second World War.
During the war a young Land Girl arrived from Yorkshire to live in our house.
As far as I can remember my brother Michael and I moved to Castleford to live with her family.
Rock Hill in Castleford resounds in my mind (and Yorkshire pudding, large teaplate size).
Michael and I attended school and later returned home with Yorkshire accents.
The Land Girl was called Minnie Pickersgill.
Sadly I cannot confirm any of this as both my parents and brother have since died.
I would love to know if Minnie or any siblings or children could help me fill in some of the blanks.
Please email the Pontefract and Castleford Express at firstname.lastname@example.org with any information you might have and the details will be passed along to me.
