Well done Colin!
I always knew the street cleaner as ' ow'd Tommy ' who as you say had a gammy leg and was a little ' backward '. Funny how poor memory and fact can get mingled. Again I always knew the junction of all the streets at the top of Market Street as Printers Junction, taken from the name of the pub on the corner just up from the Memorial Gardens. The Dungeon was directly opposite my Aunt Martha's house which was the end house of the terrace at the start of the road...long since demolished. The Dungeon was always locked and memory tells me it was a hexagon shape and built of very thick dressed stone.
I'll tell the tale of Stormer Hill later. Tottington Mill ( a calico factory?) as I recall was on the Lane ( cinder track ) leading down to Island Lodge which was straddled by the railway bridge of the old rail track up to Holcombe. The actor was Graham Haverfield who played the character Jerry Booth the somewhat simpleton mate of Len Fairclough. He died suddenly in 1975 from a reported heart attack brought about by liver failure. So the story went. The Nunnery at Greenmount was I think called Holy Mount and I delivered milk there as a 14 / 15 year old. The nuns were fearsome to say the least! Yes.. Tower Farm. It got it's name from the ' Folly ' built as the front of the farm. It looked like a defensive tower / keep from a medieval castle! Didn't know it was now a fancy eatery! Tottington Secondary Modern as was is now a complete shit hole! Around 7 years ago I attended a car show at the school only because I wanted to have a look around my old school that I left in 1963 and had not revisited since. What a total shock! When I attended it was virtually brand new, ultra modern, with a gym, woodwork and metalwork rooms and many state of the art teaching facilities. It was always kept utterly immaculate and was a school to proud of. It's now a filthy utter dump...shameful!
TTFN
Geoff
