Looking at the wonderful reflections on Barking I wanted to add my memories. I was born in Aveley. I spent many happy days out in Barking. I remember getting dressed-up, packing fish paste sandwiches and spending long summer days in Barking Park. I still remember the fish and chip shop, (Pescies), we would always have rock and chips, bread and butter and a pot of tea, surrounded by wonderfully tiled walls and a friendly atmosphere. The same lady always served us, she had white hair - we would cross the road and get the bus home, having spent a lovely, carefree day in Barking.
