I was born in the Goss, off Delph Road and moved to Corbett Road around 1957. I remember playing in the fields where Withymore is now, before any houses were built. I remember Oakley's shop and the post office round by the Bell pub. There was also a shop by the Stores pub (I think) and was called The Stores as well. I went to Mill Street Primary and to Mill Street Secondary, between 1961 and 1965. I had my first bike from Wilkinson's in Brierley Hill, I remember Catten and Hortons, and Rounds cake shop in Mill Street. We had two chemists; Boots and Timothy Whites and the Town Hall in the middle of town, the Odeon cinema (on a Saturday morning) and the motor bike scrambles down Two Woods Lane. Back then, you could walk for miles and nobody would bother you. Good times.
