Growing up in Langley

I came to Langley with my mum and dad when I was just a baby and we lived in the flats on Rowrah Crescent just overlooking the Golf Course.

I remember the coal fire we had and burning my fingers on a piece of coal. I was only about 4 or 5. I remember the rag-and-bone man going up and down Rowrah and getting kicked in the shin by a horse.

I lived on Rowrah in the flats until I was about 6 and then moved to Dacre Close. I can remember riding to my new house in a blue 3 wheeler bike with my mam and dad in the van. I lived there until I was 26. We had a front and back garden.
