Growing Up In Addlestone

A Memory of Addlestone

We first moved to Addlestone, (Derwent Close) in 1959, where I lived until joining the Army in 1973. Previously we had lived on Treetops caravan site on the Weybridge Road. I remember swimming and fishing in the mill pond at the end of Bournside Road many times. I loved living in Addlestone and have many fond memories. I returned to see the old house a couple of years ago but found that Addlestone had changed. I know things have to change on move with the times, but it has got busier. Does anyone remember the annual fair in the field towards New Haw? If anyone remembers me and would like to get in touch please do.
