The Ovaltine And Marlin Square

A Memory of Abbots Langley

I'm not too sure of what years to mention apart from some happy memorys of the Ovaltine as a young lad with my mum and dad. David my dad was the village postman for many years and mum Annie was a local florist in the village. Ernie and Edna Edwards lived on the Ovaltine for many years in the main farmhouse, many years of fun and good times with me being found in the paddock with one of the prize bulls to mention just one.
Another memory is of my nan and grandad's shop in Marlin Square (Les and Peggy Marsh) a family-run business for many years like Prigeons grocer's and Creasys bakery. Nan (Peggy) moved some years ago to the lovely coast of Essex.
If anyone has some memories to share with me or my nan both of us would love to hear and talk.
