Brett lived here in his childhood. More recently the following description of the road exists:
There was a general store/off-licence at the Clifton Road end,a bakers next door to this followed by a row of houses then some open ground followed by more houses with a small general store in the middle of these. At the top of this row was a yard owned by Timmy Scrace who was a totter with a horse and cart,then allotments with a final row of terraced houses with a row of steps into Victoria Avenue.
