I have many memories of Addlestone having lived there from 1940 to 1964. My family lived in Bourneside Road, at the far end was Coxes Lock Mill and the mill pond. We knew almost everybody that lived on Bois Hall estate. I attended St. Augustines Infant School and then St. Pauls Girls School. There were lots of ...Read full memory
My family lived in Collingbourne, High St, Addlestone and my youngest sister, Janet was b orn there, in 1943. Michael, Jean & Charles (sadly all deceased) myself, Kathleen, Ann & Janet lived there until 1952. Does anyone remember us or have any history of the house?
Have lived in Addlestone for 46 years teaching in the old St. Paul`s Junior and the newer Middle School. St. Paul`s Church celebrates 175 years this year and as a member of the church choir for over 35 years I am researching the history of the choirs at St. Paul`s and St. Augustines Churches. I have photos of St. ...Read full memory

Nice to read your comments. I remember your songs well. Hope you and your brother & sister are well.
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 ...Read full memory

At 15, I went to work at Vickers Armstrong - now BAE. After attending their secretarial school I was placed ...Read full memory
I lived in Ledger Drive in Addlestone from around 1954 and went to Ottershaw Infants (still have a class photo from around 1959/60) then St Pauls Juniors/ Secondary Modern. Worked in Weybridge, Walton and Shepperton and had a care free childhood. Good to read so much about memories of those times, still alive and kicking and remember the swinging blue jeans, walton hop, friends in the 60's.
I remember the Sunday dances at the Co-Op hall well. My mum used to work in the cloakroom and I went with her. We would take the coats in, I would go out and dance (thought I was great and grown up) then I would help give the coats out. I was about 8 when I started. I remember seeing The Applejacks, Georgie Fame and ...Read full memory
