The circular wall with an old gate post set in the middle was the base of the chimney of Astley Mill which once stood on this area now used as a playing field.

The pit hills formed from the spoils of Astley Deep Pit. The hills were the favourite haunt of school children where they could sit watching the locomotives working in and out of Dewsnap Exchange Sidings. The hill were also good for sliding down in summer using using the large curved corrogated tins off the old Anderson Shelters which made excellent sledges. These would hold about ten children who would drag it to the top then all jump on as it set off down the hill only to tumble off as it gathered speed then finally came to a sudden halt in a hollow at the bottom. I don't ever remember anyone getting hurt but then again I think we were brought up much tougher in those days.

Battle Tanks. During the 2nd World War the wagon works was used for munitions and built tanks. These were stored on the land behind Globe Lane School and those tanks returned after the war for decommissioning were also stored there. This land was raised as it had formally been used for spoil waste from Dewsnap and Astley pits but by the war it had been leveled off. During the 1950's tanks were delivered by rail to the wagon works where they were unloaded and driven down Globe Lane to be stored behind the school. The tanks were dangerous so guard rails were erected outside the school to stop the children from running out into the road. During classes there would often be explosions and large smoky fires when they were burning off the ammunition. The tanks were a good source of supply for radio ariels which made good fishing rods. Also the ammunition boxes were handy for keeping out toys in.

This bridge is (still) known as 'White Bridge'. I remember the road facing walls being painted white in the early 1950s. They were still white when I revisited the area in 2014. I used to attend a council run nursery in the single story prefabricated building just to the right of the bridge. It was called 'Dewsnap Lane Nursery'. My father worked at the Daniel Adamson engineering works during the early/mid 1950s.
