I lived in Morcote Road when I was a little girl, and have memories of the schools I attended and the surrounding areas of Braunstone. I used to go to Bembow Rise School when I was quite small then moved on to Brausntone Hall across Braunstone Park. The summers I remember were very hot and the winters extremely cold. I remember playing on the streets of Braunstone Estate and the park when I was a small girl with my younger brother and sister. I used to go to the local shops and at the end of the road on Gallards Hill if I remember correctly there used to be a mobile van which used to sell sweets. I remeber my dad used to drink in a pub called The Shoulder and Mutton and Hinkley Road which was quite a busy road. I remember some of the families that used to live on Morcote Road, the Perkins, Watsons elly and smartie and how Morcote Road was quite a long road. I used to go St Margaret's swimming baths and the market and the fish market. I have fond memories of that estate where I grew up for a short time. I left in 1969 and came to Chester where I have remained, visiting Leicester in 1997 when I returned to bury my mother.
