Wentworth Way

A Memory of Ascot

How lovely to hear about Fernbank Road. I came to live in Wentworth Way about 1960 and went to Ascot Heath school and on to Charters. I had a weekend job in the sweet shop and newsagents, as it was then. Still return to visit mum and other siblings. In those days I was a Davidson. I can remember the Hunt family, Kinsella's ,Shutes and Shepherds. What a shame there is no more Gold Cup or Cranbourne Towers. My vivid memories are of school being closed during Ascot week as the horses used to be stabled at Mill Ride and walked through the top playground to the course. Also, sports day up on the cricket field in the middle of the course. Happy days.
