Wood Street

Dave Clifton remembers :

Wood Street only had a few houses and was a close community.   There was a small builder’s yard, then at no. 3 were the Jacksons, no. 5 ( after we left the Stimpsons’ son), 7 the Dobeys,  9 was Stowes, 11 was the Bishops / Cliftons, 13 Thornes, 15 Huxsmith (not sure). On the other side was James luxury car hire yard, (they had their office next to Middletons the newsagents which was on the corner of Cathall Road and the High Road and ran two Humber limos), no. 6 Shepperds, 8 Stimpsons, 10 Jacksons, 12 Dodds.
