    ...Thanks for that memory Ged, even though its still scares me thinking back to it

    The business is now relocated on the little Industrial Estate further back up the road on the same side as the old Shop, to the rear of The old Bridewell.
    Yes, I would imagine Shaw st was dark and foboding - and still is !
    The collegiate, although a nice building, always seems rather dark and ominous

    I didn't know Aspinalls are now in the small Industrial Estate.

    The new school looks lovely though. Very modern and smart.

    The Benson St buildings and the waste land to the side could soon become more student flats.

    Yes lindy, the young collegepudding never used to stop at that particular college.

    Nowadays its not too bad as the Collegiate usually has a fair bit of visible internal lighting due to it now being residential, plus the Hope University building [ old SFX ] and the Converted Houses along from Langsdale Street all add to making the road much more pleasant during the hours of darkness, and the old Sarah McCard Nursery up on the hill by the park appears to be being prepared for another apartment development.

    SFX was my school, infants and juniors........when we were old enough to take ourselves to and from school I was always warned by my Mum NEVER to go through 'Shaw Street park' ........found out much later that the park is really called Whitley Gardens.....never did find out why we couldn't use it though.
