l was born in Sandyford. l spent hours of my childhood in Brook Street, Brown Lees. My grandad, Harry Booth, worked down the Victoria Pit. l remember seeing the miners on their way home with faces blackened by coal dust. l remember meadows of wild flowers, in spring there were bluebells. l remember Biddulph Old Hall and The Chinese Gardens. Dad to take us for walk up the Mow Cop Castle on a sunny Sunday, took a picnic (butties and pop sweets) we spent many happy hours. Sylvia Davies (nee Booth)
