Looking round the town centre today, 54 years since our illustration was created, it does show a lot of changes. With many of the small streets and yards having disappeared and some of the streets having been renamed. Then there is the bypass, this was completed in the early 1970s and carved its way through the centre wiping out out many of those streets that had been in the centre for over a century.
Did you live in one of the streets that was destined to be demolished and resulted in you and your family being housed in a new community? If you were we would like to hear from you and if you possibly have a photograph we could use your story in our quarterly magazine and share your memories of over 50 years ago with our growing number of readers.
