Old Maps of Kidsgrove

Historic Maps of Kidsgrove and the local area.

I have lived all my life in Kidsgrove from being born in Chapel Street to my current age of 78. Younger people than I have played on Red Rocks but for others about my age these were named CINDER.

I used to play at and on 'red rocks' when I was a kid. My dad and my uncles had a pigeon cote nearby and we used to go there with him and then go and play on 'red rocks'. I once climbed to the top of the biggest one and couldn't get down, I had to wait for my older brother to come and rescue me. As far as I know they were huge pieces of clinker.
