  Where you are: Living Memories - Ronald Hill
  Ronald Hill
 

                                      

Following his retirement, Ron did much research into Tickhill's history, especially the Middle Ages. In the acknowledgements to Tom Beastall's book Tickhill: Portrait of an English Country Town, Tom wrote that Ron's knowledge of Tickhill's topography and Mediaeval background had no equal. 

Ronald Hill was interviewed by members of the Society in the autumn of 2007. Then aged 92 he recorded his memories of Tickhill especially his schooldays in the 1920s which he remembers clearly and in remarkable detail. He also talks about Tickhill's Gas Works.
