I lived in the area from being born here in 1966 to 14, then I moved well out of the area. I can remember walking up and down this road up to 4 times a day on the way to Swarcliffe school. In winter time it snowed without fail and we always made a few pounds pushing cars up this hill. At the bottom of the slope to the left was a large kids play castle, how we spent many an hour in there playing pirates and hide and seek. Sadly some of the older kids compared with us leveled the castle over the years brick by brick. Infront of the block of flats on the right of the slope just out of picture is the "Hill" we played on here in winter with our sledges. The hill seemed massive now it's nothing. But on the little hill facing Grimesdyke school me and some friends when we were only five or so dug a hole in to the hill and made all sorts of dens. Driving past a little while ago you can still see our mark in the hill. I can remember the block of flats being spotless when I was a kid, then years later getting a job in security and working in the same flats doing our best to keep drug adicts out and lift chasers. If anyone remembers me I would like to here from them as I haven't lived here in years.

I lived on Stanks Lane North from 1966 to 1974. We used to meet up here, outside one of the lads homes, and sit on a GPO phone junction box. The 24 bus terminus to the left was a footie field for us and also boasted an illuminated map board.
