Several people remember that lightning struck a house in Nuns Lane in the early 1950s. In the book: Sopwell a history and collection of memories (P.92), Vera Foster gives a vivid recollection. Here is another memory from Evelyn Roberts who lived in the lane. The house belonged to Mr and Mrs Titchiner who lived at the top of the lane.
