Pridgeons Ltd Our Family Shop In Breakspeare Road

A Memory of Abbots Langley

Pridgeons Ltd, in Garden Road, Abbots Langley was our family business from the 1940s until it was sold in 1972.  My grandfather Cyril Pridgeon and my grandmother Dorothy Pridgeon started the business. Then my father and mother Peter and Dorothy Pridgeon took over.  It was a grocers.  I used to help my parents during the school holidays and really enjoyed the experience. Once the bigger supermarkets came in there was no call for the small grocers. But I will always have so many fond memories of Pridgeons Ltd.
