You Forget.....

A Memory of Addiscombe

...how prominent the church was in the 1965 landscape, before the trees grew.
I was a choirboy at St Mildreds in 1965 and used to live in Kingscote Road throughout the 1960s and into the 1970s. 2s6d fee for weddings, I recall.
90 degrees to the right of the photographer who took the Church photo, was Bingham Road Rec. The Rec in those days had neatly tended flowerbeds and grass - and about 4 good tennis hardcourts, hired by going to the little hut building in the far right corner. It also had a pavilion (for cricket, I think) in the bottom right corner.
Sadly all very shabby when I last visited 15 years ago.
