On the corner where the railings are was a chemist Timothy Whites, then LAURY WILSONS, then a fish shop. On the corner at the other side of OLDFIELD LANE there was (tardis) a police box. I used to walk to work (1953)up OLDFIELD LANE to the rec. I did my early courting in the CROWN just over the road.

My Grandmother was born at Hainsworth Street in 1904. Could anyone tell me if there are any properties still standing from that period. She also spent time in Mount Saint Mary's Orphanage which i believe is still standing but now derelict.
