I am in the photo, Tomorrow's World BBC Science Programme filmed us for inclusion in one of the TV programmes as this was groundbreaking technology in a newly built Secondary School in the UK.

I did my Motor Vehicle apprenticeship at Wadham-Stringer in the late 60s-mid 70s and wish to research the history of the garage and its predecessor, Wray Park Garages. If anyone has any information or pictures of Wray Park Garages or Wadham-Stringer, I would love to hear from you.

This looks like part of Gatton Bottom, - with the line of far trees on the right being Markedge Lane? These fields now have the M25 cutting through them ! Try asking the local farmer who farms the land ?

"Oaklands", Leigh. I don't think this is local. Anyone know?

P Norris from Nr Reigate posted this comment on Friday 29 September 2017 16:40:24.

I grew up in Leigh from 1953 at Priest's House (formerly Church Cottages ) . i remember Oaklands at Bunce Common in Leigh, but I think it was a smaller house. There was an 'Oaklands Bungalow at Bunce Common in 1942

Comment 1

Philip Pegler from Worcester WR1 1RG posted this comment on Wednesday 09 January 2013 14:50:00.

These next 6 pictures show Spurgeons sports'fields where I was fully occupied 1939-49.By the time I left the lower (boys)field was so over used that we had to play football and cricket matches on the field by the pavilion.

Ironically in 1953/5 I was a fireman in Worcestershire and I saw a photo of a helicopter landing on our cricket pitch in The Fire Brigade Union magazine as by then the grounds were the property of The Surrey Fire Service.That picture was in consequence re printed in our Within Our Gates magazine.Is it possible to re-create that in this series?

Comment 1

William (Bill) Armstrong from Kidderminster posted this comment on Thursday 07 September 2017 15:42:45.

This is how I remember the lane and the school, which I attended from 1952 (I think!) until 1955 (definitely). The head was Miss Pocock and my form teachers, in order were Miss Triman, Miss Dunn and Mr. Couston. I'm not sure about the spelling of the first of these but do recall that she was known as Fatty! In the very early days, there was a Mr. Craighill, again not sure about the spelling and later and from Oz I think, a Mrs. Fink, who drove a pre-war Wolseley. I'd like to hear from anyone who was in my class. Cheers and best wishes, Bill

Irene Howlett Lawrence from Redhill posted this comment on Saturday 09 February 2013 11:01:00.

I think my Grandfather and Father are in this photo.So would love a copy of it.I was born at 105 Cromwell Road.Certainly F.G.Lawrence & Sons was also born there and we both still exist!


Comment 2

Barbara Pennell from Truro posted this comment on Thursday 21 February 2013 22:29:00.

Hello Irene. I knew you when I was at Cromwell Road school. I was Barbara Whiting then. I was looking at photos of Meadvale, where I was born, then, browsing through all the very local places, came upon this wonderful picture. I do hope you got a copy from someone.


Comment 3

Keith Fuller from Harrogate,Nth.Yorks. posted this comment on Wednesday 16 July 2014 21:38:00.

The two ladies in the first two comments went to Cromwell Road School and I wondered if the date could possibly match the time I was in the Church Lad's Brigade (St.Mathews Church)and had quite a bit of contact with some of the pupils from the school. This was in the 1947 to 1951 period after which I left school and had to move with my parents back to Sussex. Most names escape me now, but Bob Robinson(and his girlfriend) from a Cromwell Road address,Alan Durrent, and another girl who helped, with her mother at Church Lad's events - Edna Bushnell, from Brook Street(?). I lived in Salfords (Woodside Way) from 1942 until 1951.

I'd love to hear anything about any of them - so many years have passed!!

I have put a group photograph of the C.L.B. Band from c.1947 on the St.Mathews Church part of the web, and welcome any contact.

Regards,

Keith Fuller.

I went to Cromwell Rd primary school in the early 60's. Just visiting UK now and went looking for my old address 21 Station Rd Redhill and of course the school. When did it close? Can anyone fill me in on a bit of history over the past 50 yrs in the area?
