Can anybody help? There used to be a sacking factory at 244 Court Lane, but that was 50 years ago. What was it called? What is there now?
Thanx for any help.

I decided to test the theory as to how many drunks we have staggering about on Saturday nights around midnight (lots) so ventured up there.

Two very grand houses there now, 244 is adjoined to 246 (between Jerrys Lane and Witton Lodge Rd, on the same side of Court Lane as those two roads). Not matching the style of housing on either side.

In fact the block may have just been converted into two houses. The 1948 pic on the site seems to show those two houses as they still are though (have chimneys etc).

I am sure this was a house my schoolmate lived in during the 70's

Thank you for the help. I think perhaps the name was Askam.
Best wishes,
Junore

Although I can't rememember the house number, there was certainly an Askam (Askham??) family in that row of houses in the 1930s and 1940s. I knew John and his younger brother Stanley Askam. John was in the RAF and Stan in the Navy during WWII. Nearby were the Muddiman family, Denis and Peter were at Central Grammar School with us. Dennis was sadly killed during the war.
