Having spent my first birthday in West Croft Road, Forest
Hall in 1926,
lived in a large Victorian house in 'The Grove', Benton for 42 years and over 6 years now in Norwood Court, Benton,
I have felt qualified to record much of the history of the area.
Unless recorded, history soon disappears, so
since retirement as a schoolmaster
I have attempted to record the history of this area through a series of
books and CD's, which I hope future generations (as well as the present)
will find of interest.
