North Street - a Memory of Addingham.
I was born at number 3 North Street in 1942. I was in my mothers arms and can remember Italian prisoners of war marching up to the camp on the Beamsley side of the River Wharfe and hiding on a shelf under the stairs whilst a German bomber had a go at the old SU factory at Low Mills (making carburetors for our spitfires). He missed, but there is still a crater on the opposite side of the river.
