Memories of Coltman Street 

7 August 2012

BBC TWO’s Restoration Home series is following the renovation of a listed house in Coltman Street, Hull – and would love to hear from people with memories of it.

The show, presented by Caroline Quentin and made by Remarkable Television, documents the restoration of historic buildings but also tells the past story of the houses and their former residents.

The property in Coltman Street was built in 1851 and was once the home of Christopher Pickering, trawler owner and the man who gave the city Pickering Park, among other things.  In 1921 the house became The City of Hull School Clinic and remained a clinic after the foundation of the National Health Service at the end of World War 2.

The producers would like to hear from people who worked at or were treated at the clinic, especially anyone with photographs of the building.  If you have any memories or interesting stories about the building in Coltman Street, please get in touch sending your name and contact number to the following e-mail address alternatively you can call on 0333 577 7740.
