Cherwell Grove/ Stifford Road

A Memory of Aveley

This photo actually shows Stifford Road at the South Ockendon end. The road goes over the railway bridge in the distance and up to Ford Place. The houses on the right are Cherwell Grove. I was born in 1958 at no.144, which was the third one from the far end. I grew up there and my Mum lived there until about 2002. Years gone by she was the lollipop lady for the Mardyke school. I remember lovely neighbours in the block - the Webbs, Samuals, Rickards, Trobers, and Golledges.
