Bankside Lane And The Bonks - a Memory of Bacup.

Hi, my name is John Andrew Halliwell. I used to live on Bankside Lane. The street above the bonks, I and some of my friends had many hours of fun there, much to the displeasure of my parents.

Thanks for bringing back the memories. 1962 I emigrated here to Australia.
