CONCERNING the letter in The Bugle (March 27 edition), on page 9 from Fred Williams. I remember the wooden shed at the top of Wood Street on Birmingham New Road.

I can remember going quite often to have a puncture repaired.

Mr Williams mentioned Keniston's shop when Open All Hours was on TV, with the late Ronnie Barker, as it was open all hours and there was not much you could not get there.

Also mentioned was Church's fish shop and the Rookery Raven pub, but I cannot recall it being named the Bailey's. As for Duck Meddons Drive, I think you will find it is Dock Meadow Lane.

I lived in Rookery Road at the bottom of Wood Street, now called Spring Road. When I was born it was Rookery Road but before we left to live in Woodcross it had been changed. In the registers in Wood Street School where I was a pupil, they thought I had moved house.

Mrs S. Corbett-Butler,

(nee Reeves),

17A Batmans Hill Road, Tipton.
