Hello appillow and welcome.


I don't know if the area has changed much of late, however the area particularly around Hillmeads Rd Poolfarm was quite rough. A relative of mine lived there near Greaves Square. Monks way is a bit further over towards Parsons Hill.


I'm not certain if any new houses have been built in Monksway and in so doing will have cleared out the old. A housing estate a mile of so away is in the process of being demolished and redeveloped because the estate became a slum and the houses were in a poor state due to their construction.

Thanks for your reply. Even google maps doesn't show any houses there. Apparently the new houses were built in 2004. I hope the place is alright

apillow. Where are you moving from?
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?
