    Gravestones used as pavements

    Back in the 1970's I removed and replaced with stone a cracked gravestone in front of the doorway of St. Mary's, St. Mary's Road, wonder if the church recorded the gravestone.

    Greyhound Stadium

    I went to Hyde Park a couple of times, and once to Darnall with a dog owner, his dog was called Bust.
  14. I remember a few holes, one in the area of Lyons Street was a pit shaft covered with a large concrete slab,pushed aside by the dozer driver, luckily he stopped in time it would have swallowed him, another at Woodhouse we had nearly finished the job and were tidying up, there was a piece of flagstone in the middle of the site and as I lifted it there was a 12 foot wide cistern underneath about ten foot deep shaped like a bell, another at Commonside was a domestic well in a backyard about 20 foot deep with a hollowed out log down the middle.
