Clipstone Memories

My dad was born in Mansfield, but moved with my grandparents to Clipstone in 1943. They lived at 162 Forest Rd. in Clipstone. My Granddad was a coal miner, William (Bill) Gray.

I can remember Clipstone from the times I visited as a child, my Dad John (Tiny) Gray joined the Forces and at the beginning of the 60s left Clipstone. My uncle Norman used to run the Top Club.

In 1974 we moved to Germany, where I have been living ever since.

  • I wen’t to school with John Gray and knocked about with him when we were lads. We also started work at the pit together. It would be nice to get in touch with him again and talk of old times
