I was born at 19 Lenton Croft in 1955
I remember the bridge & canal well from my childhood. I spent many hours playing alonside the canal & even remember the barges. I lived in Lenton Croft prefabs, later , sometime late fifties my father purchased no1 The Vineries. I have been seeking photos of the Co-op, Rover car factory etc & Journeys End pub. I have not been able to get a photo of Lenton Croft Prefabs anywhere.
