Undated, This aerial view dates from the 1960s. Barwick Road runs from left to right across the lower half of this view. Towards the left is the junction with Penda's Way which runs from the bottom edge. The Cock Beck public house is situated just below this junction. This pub is still running today. Stanks Drive begins in the centre of the left edge runs to the right then curves up towards the top edge.

I lived at 41 Stanks Drive from 1984 - 2000. I didnt realise that the road was only half built in the sixties as now it goes up to about 300 houses almost joining york Road. The area is now under development and many of the flats and masonettes have been torn down to make way for a private housing assosiation but at least the old semis are staying. the cock beck to the right of the image was always a favourite of the kids in the street

I used to live in Stanks Close during the late 50's and early 60's. Remember the many football and cricket games played on the greens.

Lived at 278 Stanks Drive in the late 60's in one of the Masonets that have now been pulled down. Looks like they have not been built in this picture. Yeh, I also grew up in those fields and caught many a fish in the Beck.

I moved to 68 Stanks Drive i the Spring of 1957. I was 6 years old. I remember playing in the fields between Stanks Rise and York Road. Then it was built on, I remember the first building plot.I have now seen many of those buildings being demolished, it did make me feel my age

I used to live in the last house at the bottom right on Barwick Road. Lived there from 1949-1969. I remeber (just) Stanks estate being built. Also I beleive that the site to the bottom right where barwick Road crossed Cock beck os the site of the battle of Winweadfield a battle between King Penda of Mercia and Oswy of Northumberland. The name Stanks is a saxon word meaning "Wells". In the 60's there was a well in the garden of a house higher up Barwick Road

We moved from Chapeltown Road, to Ash Tree Grove as soon as it was built in 1965, I grew up there. I had the Stanks Lane South evening paper round which took in Stanks Lane South, Eastwood Lane and Crescent, Some of Eastwood Drive and Ash Tree Approach. This would have been about 1970 to 1973 ish. Tom Hudson would deliver the papers to us outside the Chip shop on Stanks Parade and off we went. I also did the collecting round on a Sunday Morning, Many a time I would have upto £250 in my leather bag, and I never got touched, not once. Apologies if you got a torn newspaper. Feel free to e mail me.
