Another alley that has now disappeared under the new Birmingham, tough this one has been replaced in name a little further up the road. Cannon Passage ran from Cannon Street to Needless Alley opposite the end of Fore Street.

Phil,
Thanks for finding that info. The mill was much bigger in it's day. I have never been to that part of Kidderminster.

The last time I ever saw Barry would have been about 1970 and tat would have been in the corner bar of the Crown at that time he would have been into his 30's I would imagine and that's 38 years ago.


Thanks for that Phil ,  I bet he's still as well turned out as he was back in the 60's

I don't think I have ever been through Broadwaters so obviously I have never seen the park or the Mill, Here is a little of the history of the Mill if you are interested.

talking of the Island Pool I'm sure I had a carvery there one Sunday one summer, tough I'm pretty certain it was called the Cookley Arms or something like that then, also there is something in the back of my mind that tells me that we once had a fishing competition on the pool across the road.
