Does anyone remember in the 60's getting a ride on a nag at a farm somewhere up Bean Leach Road way? Was it owned by John Broad, rag and bone man? I might be getting my memories mixed up, of course

Never been on a horse myself - prefer something with brakes! - but people (usually female) used to set out on the "horsey circuit", from the farm on Bean Leach Road, most weekends, down/up to Commercial Road, Chapel street, Wesley Street, Douglas Road, Hazelwood Road, up the hill and back down Bean Leach; distributing vast quantities of manure as they went. The corner shop in the valley often had a horse tied up outside "a la dodge city" but that's another story. What's more, does anyone remember when Wesley Street had stumps in the middle so you couldn't drive straight through? All the better for it in those days!
