Pavilion Cinema In Background Before They Put The Railings Round The Pond

This picture was taken before they put the railings round the pond. One Sunday on my way home from Sunday School at Christchurch, I was feeding the ducks and my Bible flew out of my hand. I tore the back of my leg on the barbed wire on top of the iron railings as I climbed over to get it back. The fair came to the park and there was a wonderful playground at the top and the Hero's shrine at the St Michael's end. The bowling green and tennis courts were at that end too.

Birds Nuts And Bumping Cars

In 1944 my mother and I moved from a two bedroom basement flat in Grosvenor Road at the top of the town, to Chrismas Avenue, a three bedroom semi-detached, that connected between Ash Road and Newport Road. My father was away with the war in North Africa. I soon made firm friends with the Chismas Place gang.... the Place being a small cu-de-sac off the Avenue, that had many more interesting children living there. The Manor Park was a mere hop, skip and a jump away for the Chrismas Place boys and girls, with just one dangerous main road, "The High Street" ,to cross which sadly did claim one of our number...David.... a highly priced lesson was learnt by us all. But the Manor Park was our teacher ...Read full memory

One Of My Earliest Memories . . .

was walking through Manor Park where it was a common occurrence to see red squirrels right next to the main entrance. We often walked through the park on our way to the swimming pool which was quite a distance after leaving the park. Ducks swam on the pond in the picture above; they were mainly mallards and frequently we took bread to feed them. I think that Manor Park was my introduction to the British wildlife in which I have had a keen interest as long as I can remember. Manor Park was the venue where the annual fun fairs put up their stalls, and many a time I attended the circuses that put up in the park too. There wasn't all the fuss then that there is now about animals in circuses and I ...Read full memory

Where's The Bandstand?

My dad took me to see the old barracks being demolished and we had a vantage point from a bandstand next to RAOC. It last appears on 1963 map prior to Potters building the Hotel. It would appear that the extension has been built on ther site of the bandstand. I remember it was surrounded by trimmed hedges.

Wellington Monument

As a kid in the eighties,i used to mess around by the Wellington monument, back then it was like a jungle all around it, you could'nt really see it properly unless you were right in front of it. A group of volunteers done a brilliant job of clearing alot of the bushes back,so now you can see it better from a distance ...Read full memory
