I grew up in Burtonwood from 3 months old, we lived in the Stephouses next to the Methodist chapel until I was three then in 1955 moved to a new council house on the Miners Estate, Knight Road. I moved to Ashton In Makerfield when I got married in 1977 and am still there. I go back from time to time to see old friends. It is good to see that the old Filterbeds where we played (forbidden but that made it more fun) is now a children's playground, very fitting. All the pubs are still there but I see the old Labour Club is now the church hall.
