The Word on the street was an Ourspace event which took place at St Peters Church Windmill Street on 7 November 2009. During the afternoon there was an exhibition about the history of the local area followed by an evening social event which included live music, films about the area and Spearings meat pies.
You may have lived in the Windmill Street and Black Road area all your life and remember how things used to be. You may have come here much more recently, and wonder what stories are stored in the streets and houses . . . and even under the ground . . . .
Either way you’ll find ‘The Word on the Street’ fascinating. We’ve found local people and local historians, pictures, maps and records of how life here has changed over the years, and how the area has developed.
On these pages you will find some of the information that was displayed at the exhibition and the videos made for the social evening.
