Story related in 2004 by Julie Wickham - "We were
lucky because a parachute mine had landed at the
end of Clifton Street and several houses had
collapsed into the cellars, including our previous
house, 61. It was never rebuilt and the site is
now part of the playing field for a new school
built after the war."
