My father had a butchers shop at ManorTop opposite the Elm Tree and his mother lived on the premises. My grandmother was great friends with the Olivers, they used to visit her holiday bungalow at Humberston, and at the time they had a shop on Handsworth at he top next to the cinema. She took me to stay with Mrs Oliver, I think she was widowed but her family visited that day. We stayed over a couple of nights I think and I remeber clearly the old organ in the large kitchen and the grand piano.  There was a 'hidden' back straircase too and a bed so huge I couldn't climb into it. I remembered the garden as having a stream running through but having read more I now believe it to be a channel to keep the livestock in, or out. My gran was Florrie (Florence) Wells and my father was Charlie.
