Clumber Street from the 60's/70's

Memories of old Clumber Street.

Memories of Clumber Street in Mansfield as we knew it from the 60’s/70’s from my collection . I’m sure some Mansfield folk will remember the shops in the photograph sadly long gone, but would welcome their story’s and nostalgia memories.

  • Would love to see an earlier photo of this view, is the E. Patrick business the premises used by Henstocks Motorcycles in the 60’s as my father Harry was the manager? Spent many a happy hour in there on Saturdays & school holidays. The bikes were lifted through a trap door to be worked on upstairs.

  • Hello Graham. In the late 60s me and my cousin used to frequent a coffee bar on Clumber Street. If my memory serves me right it was called the Flamingo and I think it was the building that later became the Balti restaurant which is shown in your photo. It was a meeting place for some of the mods in Mansfield. I can’t remember how long it was open for or what it was before it became the coffee bar.
