Tony's memories - Dingy cellars, and the communal washhouse

We've interviewed a number of people already who remember Lich St, getting their memories of life here to add to the record. Clips from these interviews are already on the blog. When Tony Hoskins got in touch with us he told us he was born at No.9 Lich St in 1948. This corresponds with the north eastern edge of the excavation area. We thought this would be a great opportunity to do an interview on site whilst showing him round, to help jog his memory and enable him to point out features to us.

He only lived there a couple of years, but as his Grandparents lived in the house he was a regular visitor during the 1950s. He recalls the dark and dingy cellar, which terrified him, along with the layout at ground floor. He also recalls Court No.1 and the communal washhouse there
