I was born in Lower Wortley, and until the reservoir was built on the ring road, can remember the ring road floading.
I went to Lower Wortley school, then Thornhill which isn't there anymore, my brother and mum still live in Wortley.
Western Flats Park was my stomping ground, and we used to play on the hills behind the Kirkdale Estate, annoying the security guard as we played on the rail tracks of Dunlop and Ranken, no longer there.
Happy childhood memories, I now live in Solihull.
