The police station was in Durham Road opposite the New Brancepeth Co-op.I think it was later Browns the Bakers.

Was 1918 Karen, Flass was a coaching house and is on maps going back to the early 1700s Long before the village was built.

Dents had a bakery on the corner x

Originally lived just round the corner in Arthur Street then later in Fir Park between 1955 - 1964. Yes Dents was the baker. Sad to see the cinema and club gone and the junior school in a heap of rubble when I finally returned in 2010. Even the railway viaduct gone. The back lane where we used to play as kids was packed with parked cars. Was known as Michael West in those days.
