pits hills winter 
When I lived on Rothesay Ave as a young boy we had farm land behind our house horses and cows in the fields from Reeces farm ,we had what was left of a large lake just outside Ralph orchard , now the Lakes care home. the lake was filled in around 1948 but not completely photos below show the lake prior to 1948.
We played in this area and in the orchard until Ralph or his Gardiner chased us out apple and pear trees in the orchard attracted many kids including me visiting the site today brought back many happy memories and some sad ones.
The pit hills are long gone and the whole area is now flat two football grounds on the site and some trees where the lake was but its still the pit hills to many of us.
