Born And Bred - a Memory of Tipton.

I was born in Great Bridge when it was a thriving centre. One could get absolutely anything there, from wet fish, tailored suits to model aeroplanes! I attended Tipton Grammar School, from 1962 to 67- which I hated. I remember a totally different Tipton from my youth - it always has been a poor area, but life was so much more pleasant in those days. Nowadays, all there seems to be are feral kids, takeaways and acres of one bedroomed flats. My best memories are of the people of the area.

I was at the school then and I too do not have happy memories. I was always in trouble. Yet, I still have everything that I made in Mr. greaves metalwork class.
I loved the girls though.
