Lynn its as Di said earlier its in Aston/Hockley area and classed really as part of "Summer Lane". :)

Bridge Street West is still there,,with Police Staion on the corner/Summer Lane :police:

Farm Street,,only the top part (Hockley end) is still there,, Rest is newer houses & grassed areas.

Just a bit of "Info" to keep you up to date,,Cheers John O0
