I live in Watford but I was born at 55 South Crescent in 1953, my mother's maiden name was Christlow, they moved to 16 Reginald Street. I remember visiting one time and my cousin Joe Lee used to play the bass drum in the colliery band and I went along to a practice session in the school playground in North Road. My uncle Norman Christlow used to have an allotment behind the picture house. My cousin and I used to go and watch Sunderland when they were at home. When I was in my teens and I was visiting I played for the Villa with my cousin, I can't remember the score but had a good time. My nan was Florrie Christlow. I remember the cobbled stones that ran down the back lanes and the outside privy. The back door always open, it was a very friendly community. I always loved visiting my nan and family. We used to play down the burn jumping diggers, great fun.
