I use to be believe my friend Linda Barker telling me to knock at the door and run as a old witch lived there,we are still good friends after all these years.

I lived in Ravenscroft Buildings and remember all the above, we braved it once and found the witch sitting in her chair was a mangle with a cover over it. We had huge bonfires on the bomb site on Nov 5th. The Black Buildings were lit by gas when I was young, have no idea if electricity was ever installed or when it was demolished. I was baptised in St Thomas' Church in 1941 and have the certificate to prove it. Happy days, I treasure the memories.Val Mutch (nee Carpenter)

I lived in Ravenscroft Street and used to play with someone who lived in the Black Buildings. His uncle was Bernard Breslaw. And they had a TV.

I lived in Georgina Gardens (opposite the black buildings) and in the street that ran parallel to mine - the name of which I cannot remember - lived Alfie Bass (if anyone remembers him).
