Good photo. It is good to see some games being played on the old cricket pitch.

Where we used to run the 100yds and 220yds races on our school sports day...interesting to see how it is now.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 12th November 2013 at 22:03
That is a really nice photo.Hope it is all well looked after by the youngsters who use it.
My dad used to take me with him to watch the cricket in the fiftes but I can`t remember where it was ?

Those buildings in the trees at the top right corner, were they once the labour exchange ( or something like that).


Comment by Art on 14th November 2013 at 01:24
KenR, I hink you're referring to "The Huts" (tax office)on Bridgeman Terrace, which was opposite the top righthand corner of the playing field, not on the pic.
Where the trees are is a dentist surgery & private houses. there was a small grandstand there in years gone by


Comment by Owdkewyed on 15th November 2013 at 01:18
I remember that dentist well,I had a filling there then went and got Lynne the dental assistant to ring up for my GCSE results from school...TLS... what a crap morning that was .
Where the boy is standing with his raised arm is the position of the long/ triple jump pit during athletics meetings at TLS.
And the square brick building that used to stand in the far corner was a squash court as I rememeber


Comment by Graham Taylor on 20th November 2013 at 10:55
The building in the corner used to be a fives court, some weird sport the Grammar school lads used to play.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 20th November 2013 at 16:05

Comment by Roger whistlecroft on 27th November 2013 at 17:31
