The area on the left-hand side of the road in this shot used to be covered with houses, shops, chapels and so on (the village Post Office was just behind where the bus shelter is on the left, for example).

Virtually the whole of the western side of Lodge was demolished in the 1960s and 70s to make way for the expansion of the Steelworks. Ironic, really...
