I grew up on the Greenfields Road/Colliery Green Drive housing estate in the late 70's & 80's. I fondly remember playing on the empty fields between the estate and the marshes where Sunningdale Way, Derby Close etc. have since been built.
Recently I revisted the area and tried to explain to my partner what the land was like before the houses, the fenced off field where people kept horses, the playing field next to Colliery Green Close, the large grids from the abandoned coal mines on the land etc.
I was wondering if anyone had any photographs of the land before the houses were built? Does anyone know when the houses were built? I know they were thehere when I moved in 1994.
