  6. I remeber the chip shop on the bottom part of Derbyshire Lane .When it was run by the Middletons it was still fired by coal one fire in each end.When young children went with their parents they were given a small packet with a few chips.In those days you could get chips 4 old pence and fishcakes 4 old pence and it was that popular the que went round the shop and onto the pavement.Happy Days
