My parents lived at 3 Bradgate cottages, my brother would have gone to Slater street school mid to late 50's. My mum worked at the factory on the corner which is derelict. The garden backed on to the river.

My memories of Wyggie girls school straddle the years 1951 to 1956. I can still remember being in awe of Miss Pedley until she appeared in th end of year play 1066 and all that.
