As a child I lived with my family in Gorton Road. My father had an allotment off what we called 'Derby Lane'. I recall Derby Lane being an unmade road which ran between Tannsfeld Road and Trewsbury Road and which was bordered on one side by a park. In Derby Lane was just one property, a house that fascinated me - Derby House. I think the allotments must have been in a parcel of land, sandwiched between the gardens of properties in Tannsfeld and Trewsbury Roads. This was probably around 1960.
