Parson Cross Park

Recommended Posts

Anyone remember Parson Cross Park in the 50s when it was a massive corn field. Used to have some great fun, with my friends who lived on Deerlands Ave.

It covered the area of the park. Between Deerlands Ave. Linsdsay Road, Buchanan Road and Adlington Road. I was 7yrs old in 1953 and certainly remember it , before it became a park late 50s.

Girls in my class were, Jean Godbehere, Margaret Harrison. Marilyn Morris, Hazel Mattock, to name a few. Some of the lads were, Len Powell, Fred Hird, Gerald Cotton, John Brown, Peter Bradshaw. You would have been at Hartley Brook school same time as my late sister Yvonne.
