Story related in 2004 by Julie Wickham - We were lucky because a parachute
mine had landed at the end of Clifton Street and several houses had
collapsed into the cellars, including our previous house, 61.   It was
never rebuilt and the site is now part of the playing field for a new
school, built after the war.
