I was born on South Parade which faced onto the engine fields on the Well Hill side and is now demolished and flats built there. I spent my childhood playing on the fields and in the mill ponds. I remember an occasion when my father saw a “doll “ floating in the pond ( around 1950-1952 ). And pulled it to the side with a stick thinking to bring it home for me. It turned out to be a new born baby, and was quite a scandal at the time,although I was too young ever to know the outcome.
