We lived in bracewell hill.I remember being sent to church on sunday morning with my brother chris. Instead we went to ovenden station,(opposit the grove) where we saw a steam train. This must have been about 1959.

Ovenden Station
by: Dave O'Connell

We used to live on the Grove in the 1950s and were often out and about, usually a gang of kids. If we were in the vicinity and there was a train coming we would rush to the bridge by Ovenden station and peer over the parapet and get our faces blackened in the steam – and sometimes burnt by hot cinders! This would often precede an afternoon's walk up the nearby hills. Ah, the freedom. I see that there are a lot of photos of the old station on ‘Images of Ovenden’ on the net.
