The Mill – My gran and uncle bothed worked in the Mill, from our classroom window the red bricked building dominated the landscape, we jostled with workers on the way home from school and at weekends played in it’s overgrown WWII bomb shelters. When I walked out the school gates for the last time I clearly remember thinking that if college didnt work out I could always find work in the yards or the mill but by the time the course finished both were facing closure in the Thatcher years….
A once favourite cinema of Heid o’ the Hill denizens. A night at the “La Bugs”, roundad off with a plate of hot peas at Baldini’s cafe was indeed a special Saturday night treat.
