This is Brook Hill. Most of the buildings are still intact today. The larger building on the left is still a shop today. I don't know what it was then, but today it is a general grocers.
This is Thorpe Street. Back then, there were a lot more shops and pubs on here. Again, all tthe buildings remain, but have been turned into houses.
This was the Old Barley Hall Colliery. Nothing remains of this today - just a few bricks from the winding shed. Before the colliery was pulled down, it was used in a Walt Disney film called "Pit Ponies" and also an adaptation of a Barry Hines book called "The Price of Coal". I know that The Price of Coal was filmed in 1976 because I almost got the part of Bobby Knutts daughter (I have told you the story before so I wont repeat myself!!). They pulled the rest of the pit down after they had finished filming.
