Mount St. Mary
Undated. View from Upper Accdommodation Road looking towards Mount St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church. In between is a cleared area that had previously been occupied by Elsie View and Ada Crescent. This area has since become the site of new housing on The Spinney and Spinneyfield Croft. On the right, the site of the former Bertha streets has already been built on and has become Richmond Hill Close. Image courtesy of Paul Farnill.

Does anyone know roughly what year the Berthas were knocked down? My late mother wrote a poem about their demolition and I'd like to know roughly when she wrote it. Thanks
