Hi All

I lived in Dingle Mead from when I was born in 1967 with my Parents Terry and Rose Moore and my Sister Susan (Sue). We left in 1976.  We lived in one of the 2-storey Masionettes and our garden backed on to the canal.  We loved it there, I have many fond memories of our time and the people who lived there. It was a lovely community.

I was sad when I heard it had been completely demolished and new housing built, it doesn't even have the same road name, it's now called Boatmans Reach and when I visited the new road I didn't recognise it at all, it has been completely re-designed. However the massive electricity pylon is still there!

I went to Pineapple Junior and Infant School at the bottom of Allens Croft Road, the head teacher was Mr Ross and then Mr Jones after Mr Ross left.  The school is now called Allens Croft Primary (how boring).  I remember a teacher called Ms Gillette, she was horrible and slapped my legs in the dinner queue  :-[

Love the map and the photo that has been posted  O0
