Princess Mary Village Homes

A Memory of Addlestone

I can remember as a teenager in the late 1970s early 1980s walking home in the dark down Crouch Oak Road and being terrified of walking past the gates to the home and the Church that was just inside the gates. Even during the day you never ever saw anybody going in or coming out of the home or walking about, it was almost like it was deserted. I think thats where I learnt to run in platform boots and stiletto heels, to get past those gates as fast as possible lol.
