Left over 30 years ago. Still visit. The decline is sad, but to some extent it's the same for most towns in the UK.

Moved out 28 years ago. I occasionally go back when visiting family but it's heartbreaking how it has declined into the state it's in now. [sad]

But as has been mentioned, hundreds, probably thousands of Britsh towns have declined just as badly.

My happy memories of Redcar are Disco Dennis, swimming in the 'Rezzie' on the way home from Rye Hills and when we couldn't be assed walking that way, we'd get cut across the gap in the racecourse fence, often getting chased or covered in vandal grease!

borophilos Posted on 23/04/2011 11:44

UL - me as well remember swimming in there during the summer, broke into the little control room a few times and turned the water on to fill it up as well.

Grew up in Dormo and lived there from 1971 to 1993. My kids think it's paradise because we live about 4 hours away from the seas now, but when we visit we're right next to it.

That's one of it's beauties, being on the coast. You don't really appreciate the sea until you move away.

On the subject of pronouncing Redcar: in the British Museum there's this really ancient map of England, and it's got 'Redker' and 'Maske'. So the locals are correct.

Who on here is living / has lived in REDCAR?

I recently did a house clearance in Redcar, it was worse than the worst you have seen on life of Grime.

6ft deep in excrement and the owners belongings, they were there picking through the rubbish pulling clothes off dog turds and putting them in bags, while we waited for them to finish taking their possesions, we could not start the clearance until they had their listed possesions out, they took forever and then blamed us for holding them back.

I do hope i never see them again, as i will feed the bitch a dog turd. leaving dogs in that condition, there is no excuse

Moved to Redcar in 1970 as a nipper and still here. In the last 2 years i've been thinking of shipping out as it's become a sh*thole. I know loads of town centres are in the same boat but the town is dying on its arse...and a vertical pier isnt going to cure that.

Johnny Moore was no legend. Rewind to 1994. Martin Wilson. You should remember it very well Wally, you were there!

Ahhh..good ole Mr.Moore. His son (who no-one ever knew) was better than anyone in the footy team, and could 'eat any one of us for breakfast' [:O]

Lived in Station Road for 3 years.
My Mum and Dad used to own the sweet shop.

Went to Ryhills school - eventually moved to Eton Road in Middlesbrough.

Was that the newsagents on Station Road with the big Evening Gazette sign? I still vaguely remember the gas works on that road. Wasn't Dallas Carpets around there too? My memory's all a blur now.

I also went to Rye Hills and left in 91,Jonny Moore was a legend PE teacher,loved it when he would send the lads out to run around the footy pitch in the snow in decemeber whilst he watched ya from the comfort of his Ford Escort xr3, then force everyone to get a cold shower.Regarding his legendary son we once played against him at footy in a cup game think he played for Coulby Newham and after years of been getting told he was like Pele we all tried to smash into him on every tackle with Moore didnt take to kindly to putting people on detention who went with 5 yards of him.If anyone on Facebook he even has a fan page.

Got on my Bike 27 years ago. It was in decline then but the generation before me thought of it as quite a posh place[^]

The gasworks was on West Dyke Rd where Morrison's petrol station is. Unless there was a pub by that name that came and went after I left (there have been a few of those).

T_C, that's wrong, I don't even know where Broadway in Redcar is!

Urban...Broadway is in Dormanstown...it runs parallel to the Trunk Road (footy fields in between). TC I used to live on Broadway East.

I remember when the ship ran aground off Redcar beach about 15 years ago. I was on the national news that week for a split second. I was also on the local news when Green Gates Primary was fire-bombed. As well as being on MOTD. I'm some sort of local celebrity me, like.

I've still got it on VHS somewhere, Wally. About a minutes clip as Chesterfield were getting off the bus.

I definitely know who you are. A top bloke, so much so that Michael Jackson once sung a song about your friendship. [xx(]

If you haven't worked me out yet, I'll keep you guessing... [:P]

Johnny Moore in his white Escort XR3i dressed in his ski jacket, heater on, flask of soup whilst we ran round like idiots in the snow....'What's a matter with you, you shivering maggots it must 80 degrees out here'.

Another Moorism and a particular favourite catch phrase of his was 'That's ideal' e.g. right lads today we're doing Padder Tennis, right 13, that's ideal !!!

Always promising to take us ice skating at Billingham Forum but then blaming Rubberduck (religious bookshop owning headmistress) for over ruling him.

Redcar is now dead on it's @rse.

I saw them in Bradwell in Peak district tother night and "Mick Jagger" made reference to Redcar!Richard,with Bassist Bill Wyman hairdo and the band were spot on. He now lives in Marske. Oh and his dad was on Boros books as well. Great night.I was Bevvied.

Who on here is living / has lived in REDCAR?

Lived there 38 years til I moved here to Oz.

St Albans Primary then Sacred Heart. Left there in '82.
Was glad to see the back of it, to be honest, but now when I think back it's always the good stuff I remember.

Still, don't think I'll be back anytime soon

A_M, it'd be interesting what a modern day JM would drive today - a Focus RS perhaps?!

W_F, Welsh? You'll have to try harder than that, mate!

I don't understand why Redcar ex-pats have chosen to move to the likes of Eston, Marske and Brotton. Surely those towns aren't any better than Redcar?
