The Flats - a Memory of Widnes.
This is the new flats in Thirlmere Way, the top end near Royal Avenue, and you can see the Labour Club too on the left of the flats. The GUS ( Great Universal Stores) offices was built on the field as well but I don't remember the date. I can remember more of the GUS being built because the dumper trucks moving earth from the building site used to go up and down Philip Road where I lived. I think they where using the material to fill in the pond at Meads Farm which was directly at the bottom of our road.The Turners Asbestos factory was built on the farm land.
