I think The Beresford was on the corner of Sun St. There was a butcher on the opposite corner of 'Benny' and 'little' Sun ST. And on the other corner of 'little' Sun St was Miss Heggies. But what was on the corner opposite the Beresford and 'big' Sun St?

The wall of a house in Bentinck st, if I remember there was a wide gate then the back entry, next to the Beresford I think was a house then the sweet shop then the pub on the corner in Gladstone st and opposite was the bombdies and Lowther st where I lived.

Check this out, if your registered you can zoom in.

The air-raid shelters in the park have been removed at the Cole St end and also at the Duke St end,

Hi I am researching my family history. My dad was born in the Beresford, his dad Richard Humphreys was landlord and I’ve just found out his father John was landlord before him.
If you have any details I would love to hear them. Cheers.
