The Fields Us Kids Used To Play On.

A Memory of Bilston

Many years ago, about 1951, us children myself and my brothers and our friends used to play on the fields where now Bilston Colledge is situated off the Wellington Roa in Bilston. We had such fun playing on those fields, running up and down the bonks, as us Bilstonians would say, and also jumping the rusty brook. If there is anybody out there who remembers those fields, let us know. I am also trying to find some of my friends from the past who attended Etheridge Girls School between 1947 to 1957, my maiden name was Bromley.
