View From Newhill Across To Melton After Outcropping In Early 1960s - a Memory of Wath Upon Dearne.

This view looks from Newhill almost opposite to Newhill park across to west Melton, the sectioned off plot of land was controversial as the property being built there had to have the previous foot path moved to allow for the building of the bungalow that is now the Homestead, the rough land on the left foreground belongs to the Thacker family, the tree blocks out the view to Stacey mill house which had been the old Rockingham soap works.
