    A terrace of very original three storied weaver's cottages that have been going down hill (literally) for decades. One can see by the very substantial buttressing on the old machinery building how much slippage the site suffers from. In my early motorcycling days there was an old bloke who collected and sold old bikes living in the end property on the right - seem to recollect that he was the wife's granddad. Good old Nuttalls, their factory was at the bottom of Queen's Road Doncaster and we lived literally yards from the factory and the minty smell! At this time of year a young lad knocking on the back door always got a very large freebie for his stocking - happy days!
