CHIPSHOP GOOSE GREEN
Started by: GOLDEN BEAR (2637)  Report abuse
Hi there W.W.s I have been asked to see if anyone remembers the name of a fish & chip shop in BENTICK STREET GOOSE GREEN . I recall my mother sending me there from Walpole ave for Friday tea's this really goes out to all senior folk from the late 1950s to 1960s who may have lived round about THE NEW INN PUB AREA, All those backstreets as i say i used to go almost every Friday and cannot remember the name ,i would appreciate anyone's help.

I had to have a go at her she said to me ( off course it's a t'chippy) SO i said to her hey whoa im asking friends on WW for this calm down or but a bloomin computer y'sell.
