Ebenezer Square - a Memory of Worsbrough Dale.

Hi, does anybody remember living in the Ebenezer Square? We lived at the top, if you turned left you went under a hallway and we lived in one of the houses. I remember some of the families, Fallis and Fletchers, and we had a relative who had a shop at the side of the Co-op, she was called Goldthorp, when we bought 2 ounces of spice, or sweets as they are called now. If it went over she would cut the sweet in half ,the good old days, 2 blackjacks for a halfpeny, wow we thought we was rich.
