For old Incers, this was the site of Melling's Farm, Melling's Flash and The Three Bridges....Sunday afternoon walks with my Mam and Dad.

I also remember when this road was a bridleway that ran from Manchester road passed Melling's Farm to the three bridges and bulrushes along the bottom of the railway embankment. At my mothers funeral a Daughter of the Melling's informed me that my Grandparents who lived at No2 Common Nook used to visit and remembered them once ice skating at the Farm.

Irene,good on you been trying to think of the name of the Farm.Can you remember the names of the Lad &Girl who lived there.Do you remember when one Fire Engine spent Weeks there draining the Flash.Us Lads from Spring View spent weeks up to our Knees in Mud looking for the famous one eyed Giant Pike,never found it.Think that was about 1957/8.

No, Jimmy, I'm afraid I don't remember that or the lad and girl at the farm.
