It seems that freak weather is nothing new.  These photographs from the Chad show the aftermath of a dramatic hail storm in Pleasley in 1975.

  • I do recognise Fred Bower on all of the photographs and many of the others by sight but not name. How times have changed and not for the better! Even a freak hail storm provided so much fun for the kids of that generation. How delightful!

  • Is the first photos of Teversal Avenue in Pleasley. Im sure it is. I used to live there in 1965 till 1969. Was trying to recognize the people in the picture.

  • I can remember that so well on that Monday morning about 7 o’clock. My wife Ann started a new job that morning and what about that mini that floated down Chesterfield Road!
