: nice pictures - but I am so old I can remember the Civic Centre site when it was mud and ponds ( great for newts), and when the Co-op was the Co-op before it was Shopping Giant then the Co-op then Asda! Why do old pictures always look so tranquil - even the main roads?
Yes, I can remember the fields before Civic Centre, and also when the M56 (close to our old house) wasn't there, also fields which were good for messing about in. I also remeber walking to the airport, and paying two whole pence to stand on the roof of the building to watch the planes - wouldn't be allowed now of course.....
