That area is know as Rhyddings, there was once a Rhyddings Neighbourhood Watch back in the 60s and 70s, which covered the whole of that area, think is more with reference to the Park Irene

Re: Accrington secondary tech/Rhyddings

I was born and raised on Hornby St and Neil's home is in this video.

We aren't gobbiners (born below the lamp), but that doesn't preclude strange behaviour, and this film is even financed out of the rates !

Tom was a good friend of mine Irene as was his brother John they were in St Mary's Ossy Choir for many years and founder members of the now defunct St Mary's Amatuer Operatic society, Bernard was also a member of the choir but died very young was a great comedian and but for drink would have gone a long way, Ray was a Fireman stationed at Ossy lived on the Trinity Street Estate, as you say all sadly no longer with us

We did know of them but not personally.
The park con was vacant land facing Duffys. Park congregational church was once on there donkeys years ago. After that got knocked down, Joe Hughes, father of Leo had his joinery workshop on there. After he died, that was then knocked down, and it was vacant for years. During the war there was a steel tank full of water on there in case the fire brigade needed extra water. From memory, it was vacant after the war and i seem to think, still vacant when we left for oz 40 years ago.It sounds like from what you're saying cashman, it's been built on again.
