Skinningrove in the 1950s


The history group is collecting material that relates to life in Skinningrove in the 1950s. This is an important decade nationally as the country was recovering from World War Two and looking ahead to a safer and more prosperous future. It was also significant locally with the contraction of the ironstone mining industry; people growing up in this area in the 1950s are now near to or at retirement age and will be aware of significant changes in community life during the last 50 or 60 years.

If you have any photographs, documents or simply memories of living in the Skinningrove area in the 1950s that you wish to share with others please contact the history group by email, telephone or post.
