 We continue our #throwbackthursday with Mother and sons Janice, Mark and Craig. They visited on a warm day in 1979 to ’see what all the fuss was about’. They hail from Lye and so for them, this is very much their history. So much so that Craig has a distinct memory of walking past the WI everyday on his way to work.

 Craig said: “For me the best bit is the forge yard—it feels like I’m a kid again. We used to climb into these types of place and play there.”

 Some 36 years later, they pose with a little creative license. Craig no longer owns any cut off shirts!
