I lived in Meynell Road, Colton from 1944 to 1952 and remember skating on the frozen pond at this Mill in winter. I think I also remember you Terence. Were we not in the same class at Colton school?

I lived in Bullerthorpe House which was halfway down Bullerthorpe Lane (where the M1 now crosses it) from 1955 until 1968, the the house was demolished because of mining subsidence. I went to school at Colton for six years.
