Ken Roocroft says...To Yvonne and Sandra Miller,
Hi, I used to live at Bent Houses. The ones that still remain are #s 1 & 2 Bent Houses, #1 The Taylor family lived ( now it is Billy Taylors scrap yard, now run by Billy Jnr). #2 was the home of the Parrs, Bert or Billy Parr and his mother. The other #s 4 to 6 were owned by my mother Ethel Roocroft in # 6, In # 5, Mr and Mrs Donnelly lived there for a long time and when they moved I renovated the house and stayed there for a few years. In #4 Kitty Simpkin lived with her brothers Peter and ???, she married Albert Clarke. I cant recall the name of the couple in # 4 I believe she was the sister of Albert Clarke.
The only thing that remains of # 6 Bent Houses is a stone post that was part of the side gate, this is posted on Wigan World in the streets section.
