    Used to play down there as kids. Try to see who could jump across the widest bit until somebody fell in the water (if you could call it that). It was the treated but still smellly water from the sewage treatment plant at Shirebrook. How we never got typhoid I'll never know.

    I think this is taken from my Grans window on Woodhouse Avenue. It is looking towards the hill which goes upto Woodhouse past the Recycling yard. The block of houses you can see were on the right hand side of the road heading towards woodhouse and were pulled down to make way for the new road system.
