Video of Goostrey in 1975

Thanks to John Williams for passing on this episode about Goostrey..

Link to video on Goostrey 1975.

“This is, without a doubt, my scoop of the week – an episode from the Granada series about Goostrey the Village in the mid-seventies. Most of the main characters are now a little older, or long since passed on to other pastures, but it contains scenes of schoolchildren at the time, many of whom will still live today in the village.

It is a real treat see the village as it was in the midst of its expansion to its present size, and a valuable memory of Walter Carter, a character I knew well and of the like who do not exist today.

I am posting courtesy of James Lockett, a former Goostrey lad who emigrated with his parents, Mike and Julie Lockett, and brother,John, and sister, Jo, to America. Julie, the first woman member and secretary of Goostrey Gooseberry Society, features in the film. The series has been televised again in recent years but I guess is still unseen by many villagers. Anyone interested in Goostrey or country life will find it a fascinating piece of social history. Thanks James for bringing back old memories. If there are any other episodes out there it would be great to have them edited for Facebook.” John Williams
