The Methleys: built in 1902, terraced and back-to-back houses, all crammed together with tiny gardens. The only public places are the streets themselves.

The Methleys: always a strong community, a changing community.

"Prior to the "turf the street" incident of 1996, nobody had heard of the Methleys, including taxi drivers and the postal service. We were a quiet little estate of people who liked to mind our own business (and gossip about everybody elses). The neighbourhood comprised a load of old terraced houses nobody would have glanced at twice, a sweet factory which closed down in the sixties, a launderette which fell down at about the same time, and a load of snotty jammy kids who didn't need expensive turf to play on, they were more than happy to kick each other half to death on the tarmac. The only thing that could get the children off the streets was the rag and bone man's horse which was rumoured to be a man-eater."
