My grandparents lived there probably from around the war years up to the mid seventies.
They lived in #69 just across from the sweet shop. Spent a lot of time visiting  there on weekends.
Shame to hear its all gone but I suppose that's what they call progress.

 Welcome to the forum Laffy.
You are right it was Lily Crone,I couldn't remember the first name, if it's the same one. The redevelopment had started few years back and was meant to be completed but of course with most Governmemt funded projects, they are not finished as the money has run out, at least that's the story that people are told. I sometimes think these schemes are not worth the paper they are written on or if the redevopement actually served the people for the better as many promises weren't kept but then that's only my opinion. Anyways it would be good to put pics on for people who grew up in the area and moved away along time ago.Best re Girlie.
