My grandfather, Joseph Seaman, was born in number 3 Bagnall Street on 5 August 1903, the small property on the right. The building at number 1, a former plumbers office, looks rather precarious and looks as though it may fall down at any moment! I traced the property on Google Earth initially before travelling there myself to take these photos. The majority of properties are boarded up and scheduled for demolition – if I’d left this until January the area might well have been cleared for redevelopment.
An ideal example of the saying….’If you decide to do something then do it quickly… you might not get another chance!’
