    It's ironic that after it burnt down it was replaced by a fire station. I remember it well, The Wellington (it was known as The Higsons) was frequented by most of my relatives.

    Hi Jeahan

    My mam used to shop in Soho Street and shopped in Nellie Rimmer's Fruit and Veg, and Eddie Weighwell's butchers. I used to call into Caplans shop for sweets on my way to The Friary.

    St Gregs was my old school as well, sad to see it being demolished. I drove past it only a couple of weeks ago, I would have liked a final look around for old time' sake.

    Deb, I have had many meals in Piccolinos, great food and even better service. A real 'Bouna Sera' from real Italians when you enter (not just a guy from Kirkby putting on a Italian accent ;)).
