Yes, Dr.F. It was just open rough grassland until late'60's/'70's (??) when they built the flats. Recall my parents going round them when first built with a view to buying. Decided against it thankfully.
Was puzzling over what the " EEN" was on the fence. Penny just dropped whilst talking to Cris Kay - "BOWLING GREEN" of the Swan Hotel !
Interesting bit of History
on why the Swan was named. Thanks.
The end house on the RH side, in the far distance, was were I went to Sunday School. It was run by an elderly Mrs Brown. Walking home down the hill with others, the chant was "Mrs Brown went to town with her knickers upside down" !!! Pretty dodgy stuff those days AND on the Sabbath too - disgusting !
