Out of curiosity, does anyone know if there are any lists of ARP Wardens who served during WW2, specifically in Sheldon and on the knocker, Lyndon Road?

I know this thread is a few year old but I live in the shop that was on common lane. Obviously not a shop anymore but it definitely was the shop. The lady over the road had been here 53 years and has just been talking to me about it.

You're welcome Robert. So pleased that it showed your old home.
This is how it looked on that corner, before the prefabs. This was part of Moat Farm, in 1936. The house you can see, in the background, is now the Common Lane convenience store.

Hiya! I was just hoping and wondering you could remember anything at all about my home, 86 common lane. It lays back a bit next to keeble grove. I love my home it has so much character, would love to know if anyone remembers anything about it!

The shop showing in the photo was Johnsons grocers, the last time I passed it was a barber's shop. The person taking the photo would have been standing on Church rd just before the junction with common lane
