THE CRANKY PIN

ADDED 23 MARCH 2006

When I lived in Pontefract as a child, ‘Cranky Pin’ was the name given to the then derelict triangle of land where Carleton Glen housing estate now stands. I used to play there with my friends and it could be accessed from Carleton Road, Swan Hill, Mayors Walk and Slutwell Lane.

At the time during the 1950s and 1960s – there were many remnants of the derelict pig sty’s used by among others, my dad, Gerald Barry, during the Second World War.
