Chapel Street

'Coronation Street' type houses

In Chapel Street there were lots of little Coronation Street type houses next to each other. That was pretty; you went up the alleyway and it opened out into what must have been about three or four little houses with very pretty little gardens.

There was a little grocer's on the corner of Chapel Street called Jordan's, which was a funny little shop (it was there until quite recently) where you could get everything. We bought most of our food from St James's Street and these little shops.

I can remember them coming around on the bikes lighting the lamps, and putting them out when I first lived there.
