That's a good idea Astoness.
Have you got anything of The Chestnut Tree, Sheldon?

Update on the chestnut tree, at present houses are being built where it was.


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left.

Yes SB I would agree with that.. as Jo will know Berners St started at the junction with Farm St and had a pretty steep incline all the way up, finishing at Lozells road...pretty sure that pic was taken adjacent to Burbury St park..showed this pic to someone a couple of years back and he was delighted to see that his old house is the one to the right of the house painted red under the window..
