More about this scene

Dalgleish Way is part of the later 1950s and early 1960s village expansion. We are looking towards Mill Lane, with comfortable but typically uninspired housing of a sort to be found on the edge of many Leicestershire towns and villages. Although lacking hedges and trees, the gardens are maturing behind fences and dwarf walls. The local council has already made a start on digging up the road and footpaths.

This site was my first job on leaving school. I was an apprentice joiner and worked for MR Abbey Coleman, Builders of Barsby. I lived at Burrough-On-The-Hill at this time and had to cycle to Barsby every morning before going onto Asfordby with Mr Coleman.
