  • Passed here today,and the ground shown in the pictures has footings being dug out, possibly for building by the look of things.

  • I remember it because Richard Alwyn Crosby was my grandad. I didn’t realise that it began its (short) existence in 1969 though.

  • To former Woodhus lad, the land to the left of what was Crosby’s car park here, behind that was lock up type units and garages.The land further behind was just derelict up to the end of Poplar Street, and where the big house stood in it’s own ground “The Poplars” I think it was called, this was demolished a while ago.The other land  is now developed for housing as can be seen from the main road on Portland St.

  • I to remember the market stalls and quiet correct Tom and John Crosby’s corner. Now there was a man and  his shop when you get anything when all the other shop’s were shut and even on a Sunday and Bank Holidays to. To the left of the pictures can any reader remember the old stone buildings /cottages although not in the picture but must be long gone by now .Can anyone remember the buildings ?

  • Yes,correct this is indeed the old Crosby’s corner,although I cannot remember a market being here in my time,I can remember a few small markets being held on the original market place (site of old hall and opp chemists,army store that was etc??) although this has not been for many years.
