View of the Church and the Scala Progressive Club on Main Street. In later years The Scala would move to premises which are now occupied by 'Sainsbury's at Jacksons' mini-mart. Many famous names played there in the 60's until 1969 when it was turned into a supermarket called 'Grandways'!

A similar view taken in the 1990's. The Scala is now The Spar mini-market and the house opposite the Church was demolished and a pedestrianised shopping precinct constructed comprising of a Beauty Salon, Pharmacy, Butchers, Florists, Indian Restaurant and clothes shop.

This view of Sprotbrough Station shows the second station. The first one located in Warmsworth Cutting a few miles away. It was mainly used for freight but passenger trains ran twice a day along here.
