I used to live in the bungalow on the corner of the cut to Hautmont Road and that view was very familiar to me. In the 1950s there used to be a pony called Rubber in that field and when I got on his back my legs trailed on the ground.
Sitting in one of the "caves" at the foot of the slag heap was where I smoked my first cigarette - something my COPD now makes me regret with every breath I struggle to take.
