A former pedestrian shortcut in the far end of Stonefield Public Park through to Station Road. Farm Road is in the distance. This land to the left and middle was used to build modern houses. Woodburn Avenue off towards the right.
I’d love to know when the modern detached houses were built.
(I’m sorry, I don’t know who the random elderly man is carrying a new shower!)
