I lived at 149 Plantation Street, born 1950, till Plant Back as it was known was demolished around 1963 approx. My Uncle Albert had a printing business there called Martin Holt Printers. Most of my memories I can recall was playing on the Bonks as we called it with the Mullins, Herberts, Keos and Westwells, we used to drop off the wall, play Channey and tig on the tops. The latter had a 4 storey drop onto Market Street below. At bonfire time we would make a guy and wait outside the Swan Hotel collecting 'Penny for the guy' but when we had enough money we would go and get a shilling mixture. Funny how memories come back after all those years.
