A number of towns and people from across Gedling borough are featured in a new podcast series covering stories of everyday folk from bygone Nottingham.

We Share These Streets has been lovingly put together by Gedling resident Danielle Etches, who does the historical research, and Scott Taylor from Clifton, who writes, produces and presents each episode.

Twelve episodes have been uploaded so far, with the borough getting a mention in several of the shows.

Episode three of the series, which can be found on Podbean and Apple podcasts, is centred around Cyril, a postmaster from Colwick whose life was changed forever following an accident during a wartime blackout around Christmas 1941.

Arnold and Netherfield also feature in some of the episodes.

Danielle told Gedling Eye she hopes the borough will feature more heavily in future episodes.

“As well as Colwick in episode two, The love story featuring The Bell pub in episode 4 mentions Arnold and the Victoria Station episode talks a bit about Netherfield. It’s a nice mix really

“There will be other local stories on there too in time, we’ve got a list as long as our arms to go though.”
