Clinton Road - a Memory of Shirley.
I lived in Clinton Road, Shirley from 1950 to 1956 when we moved to Smethwick. At the time it was a cul-de-sac and we lived at number 95 right at the end. There was a wood next to us with a wide path though it to Widney Lane. There was also an old house halfway through the wood. The wood has now gone and houses built on it but the old house was still there the last time I visited in 2009. I don't remember much being so young but other memories are of going to a circus at the corner of Haslucks Green Road and of allotments on the corner of Marshal Lake Road. I also remember going to the lido in Shirley Park with my older brother.
