Castle Square known as Hole in the Road. 8th May 1972.

It was nothing but a mugger’s and beggar’s paradise.

My mother was mugged there after visiting a relative but the mugger came off worse as she was carrying a bag with a turnip and cabbage in.

When he tried to get her bag she swung the bag round and he ran off with a bloody nose.
