The Gayway Series


These ring a bell as well, I'm sure I remember these at the age 6 or 7 level. It's amazing how many memories you can stir up doing this!

Hi, Found you via a blog search for Gayway since I am about to post pics of some old Gayway posters on my bog (for sale in my shop). I am trying to date them. Any suggestions welcomed. I taught from late 60's and saw the books but not these posters so I think they might be quite old.

Hi...I certainly remember these around the early 70's and since most UK schools had low budgets they would have been a few years old by the time we got them. I good way of dating the books that I have found is searching for them on the ABE.co.uk book selling site.

yes, Meg the Hen and tip the cat, there was even a pig who sat on the pot and crushed it because he was cross that he was not allowed in.!

Wendy said...

Think I remember these books. Was there one with a pig, fox, hen and an old boot? X

Lovely I was just telling my five year old daughter that my first book aged 5 had "the big red lorry went up the hill" on it's first page.
I remembered something about pots and pans as well as the name of the series of books being 'The Gayway Series' all seemed reasonable

“The big red lorry went up the hill.
The pots and pans went up the hill in the lorry.
Big pans, little pans, big pots and little pots. Red pans, tin pans, red pots and tin pots.
Up and up to the top went the big red lorry. Up and up and up went the pots. Up went the pans.” Gay Way Red Book 1 or possibly the Big Lorry and Little Lorry Red Stories !
