Just Fields

A Memory of Alsager

There was never a housing estate in those days so everyone was able to walk to school across the open fields.  There was also a farm situated near the junction of Sandbach Road North and Lodge Road

A memory shared by Peter Dale , on Feb 15th, 2007.

I remember being a choirboy at Christchurch in 1956 and lived in Church Road overlooking the Mere. Open spaces everywhere. The village just consisted of properties mainly around the Mere, down past the railway station and a large council estate on the edge of the village. I was frequently sent shopping to Bunn's and Bickertons on Crewe road for groceries. I remember going to a fete on that farm at the end of Sandbach Rd where I was put on a horse which promptly ran off with me until its way was stopped by a hedge. Yes I have many happy memories of Alsager which I sadly left in 1958. I knew so many people and am sad that all contacts were lost. Everything changes in time and we all now live in a different world.
