iirc the roof was removed to reduce the scallies hanging around making it almost a no-go area at night. Although at the time I thought it was a backward step, it does look better being opened up.

I think there was a second go at the roof issue, when they put in more pelmets, perhaps someone can remeber better.

thanks Upton - more memories triggered off smile

So picture 1 is obvious, Littlewoods, Marks and Spencers area, looking up towards Home Bargains/Index end.

Picture 2, this isn't so clear, is it looking from Wimpy/Sayers area, down towards where Argos is now?

Picture 3 is looking up from the square, towards Home Bargains/Index

Wow! I remember the precinct-vaguely. More so the drain things on the pavement-they used to scare me, for some reason.

think you have them the wrong way round.

pic 1 is looking from home bargains down toward m&s at the far end.
pic 2 is what you had for pic 1
pic 3 is looking from m&s across the square to dixons.

Sorry, i did get my numbers mixed up, 2 is Littlewoods, not 1, quite clearly. The 1st pic is what throws me, the roof in the 2nd pic is different to the roof in the first pic, so how is it the same stretch, unless it changed halfway down?

Just a thought, could 1 be looking either uptowards Dixons, or down towards the market, in the row where Farmfoods and Mothercare is and the Job Centre was?

right if you look at pic 1 at the roof outside ashtons follow it to the end, then at the end is a darker bit going across it. then look at pic 2 at the darker bit by the toys sign thats the same dark bit then the roof changes to the other kind from there up to littlewoods
