Yes it would be about that, the new 'Holy Trinity Church' which replaced it was built on the top junction of Farnborough Road/Southchurch Drive in Clifton, I got married there in 1976, can remember it as though it were yesterday - if it was tomorrow, I wouldn't go!

I thought it was later than that Den, I do recall there was a stink about it as the church had been there for a very long time, probably before the area was built up the way we knew it. The cemetary had to be relocated, every grave moved according to cannon law!

The Corner House now stands in this photo. I took it about 2/3 years ago from the low roof of the Newton Building

Nice to see them using Dixon's in the artist impression. Of course Dixon's has vanished from the High Street for ever. Not a good omen for this development. ;)

Dixons in Ilkeston is now Currys who took Dixons over. It is near the top of Bath Street. ;)

Currys didnt take Dixons over, they were both part of DSG, as is woolworth ( or were) and PC World. They merely decided they needed a change of strategy as far as "branding" was concerned.

People who are kids now wont have a clue what was there before Dixons was built?

hey guys, that photo brings back a few memories, especially as some of the graves that were exhumed were plague victims. placed in that churchyard because it was considered far enough away from the castle gates.

like the site by the way.

It says at the bottom of the text that Sam Ward was the DJ.

Never a patch on his elder brother , Mergancy.
