My goodness this brings back memories! I lived in Foundry Mill Walk 1969-1972 and used to go to the off licence at the Wilson's Arms, sometimes for sweets,sometimes with a jug to get my dad some beer to drink at home.The off licence was situated in the middle of the building,about where the yellow square is in the photo. From 1976-78ish I lived on Foundry Mill Crescent and used to meet up with local friends to drink in this pub :-)
