Does anybody remember the old street names you grew up with.sadly most of these st names have dissapeared when they rearrange our little town and some of the streets have been renamed or gone forever.

All the old streets with nautical names associated with the docks have gone
eg., Fleet, Ship, Dock, Marine, Trafalgar and Nelson Street
I suppose never to be heard of again.
