In the 50s Heaton Street was very much a microcosm of the day - few people had cars so there was a pub never more than a stroll distant, 10 minutes to Hockley Brook was The Benyon and head for The Flat (Lodge Rd) and you were spoilt for choice: Brown Lion, The Hydraulic, The Great Western and The Bull - favoured by my father and grandfather, where I enjoyed many a Vimto and bag of crisps whilst sitting on the steps to the staff quarters. I doubt any of them remain. :( :( :(
