A cousin of mine on a stretch of land that everyone used to call the "breyd"(?). This was land behind the Scholes Picture House and was opposite the row of terraced houses in Lime Street where this lad lived.

Was this the piece of land where a service was conducted after walking day? I always remember the service used to end with the hymn 'The church is one foundation'.

I lived in lower morris street and use to play on the breyd at the back of our house.Once played on the swings in the back ground,fell off and knocked myself out.Only services i remember where on the market square.

I was born in one of the houses opposite to the breyd. Played there with my brother. By the heck it's grim.
