I miss the lovely smell of baking dough that used to waft over the fields.Having said that I'm glad the building taking place is on a brown field site.

It wouldn't matter if it were on Greenberg as they will still built on it. How many times do you see on the news trying to stop development on greenbe!t land, and after the protests cease what halpens? they build on it.

I was told by the estate agent that all the new streets are going to be name after types of bread
Hovis, Wheatgerm, Farmhouse and Wholemeal are just some of the ones she mentioned

I loved the aroma of freshly baked bread when I went passed the place going to work at NCB Kirkless central workshops, a wet behind the ears teen.

Well, I for one would think long & hard about living in Wholemeal Close ?
Some people (housebuilders ) have no imagination at all....wonder they havent come up with Bake Off Square !

Crumpet Close. Interesting.

Perhaps Nimble Nook for those who are fleet of foot, and Doorstop Dingle for those less so.

Seedy Drive,

We should apply for a slice of the dough in naming these roads......

Oven Bottom Passage / Pass......
I had best stop now before the Bobby comes!

I once had an attack of that ‘Oven Bottom Passage’ Veronica.
I put it down to Greenhall’s Bitter.
