Mill Lane - a Memory of Woodley.
Hi Everyone i also grew up mostly on mill lane estate (woodlands ave ) and went to St Marks School (head Master Mr Thorpe) you all have jogged my memory to fantastic times around woodley. i also remember snuches ha ha played there many times, here's a few places i remember not sure if i will get all the names correct but when i discribe them i'm sure you will all know them lol. there was Ann's pantry just where Edward Mellors is now, and livingstones the butches next to it. then opposite was the blacksmith (where the fountain is now (corner George Lane) the cinema (now Snooker) the Old Lowes Arms (Behind) was the cottages/stables. the Bonks/clay pits we use to go there swimming, Boot & Clogger (now woodley arms/sports.) opposite that was the black & white pub, (the waggon & Horses) behind that there was i think a farm. with shops running all along that side towards the navigation pub. oh yeah the Glove works (as i knew it) near fogs shop on bankfield rd, going down towards the Die works (now Morrels) with the Tall chimney (now gone). before that we played many a times in the old Box Works underneath TA Knox. I remember all the places you all have mentioned happy Days. i think (no sure) didn't wadsworth open the Kiost near the band stand in merseyway? does anyone remember Crosslands bakery at the end of st marks church, many a cream cakes from there lol can't remember the name of the two other shops one next to crosslands bakery (now a house) and one the opposite end (red house lane side), you all must remember Crown Walpaper. where Brookfield ave is now. and the steel works behind bredbury wreck. (back to mill lane) how about Urmstones owned by David & Christine. near the post box on mill lane estate. and the old Doctors that was mentioned we got chased from the back of there too many time for pinching the Apples & Pears of the trees. ha ha great times thanks everyone for helping me to take a trip down memory lane (what a enjoyable trip it was) lol still smiling. Bye.
