Banks 1957 To 1961

A Memory of Banks

I remember Banks with bittersweet memories.
I lived on Gravel Lane,just outside the village,on Gravel Lane ,there was another girl we went to school with called Carole McCabe,and we played with Janet and Edna who lived on the corner of Gravel Lane,the latter had a brother who played in Banks Brass Band.Tom Finney`s uncle also lived on the lane.
There was a farmer called Billy Ball who used to chase us off his land !
We used to pick potatoes for the farmer who lived on the Preston New Road.
We lived on land owned by Dennis Pass
We were 4 children in all my twin Kevin,my sister Angela,my brother Joe,and myself Catherine all Conley`s.
I went back to Banks last year and it was not how I remembered it,but Gravel Lane was just the same alas all the people i knew who lived there must have moved on.
I really hope someone will read this and think "oh I remember them"
