Re: Header Photo 'Then & Now'
Tom Powell still lives there. We used to get pears from that tree before his mother could sell them! Next up the village was The Grange, then a lane leading to the slagheap and the lakes (and later Hautmont Road). After the lane was The Bungalow (on the site of Ivy Cottage) where we lived, then Ormonde Villa, lived in by the Riddles, who had the pork butchers on Ormonde Street. Then came the Lord Nelson Inn.
