Hearts Lane, Barking

A Memory of Barking

My Nan, was Mrs Ring, we used to stay with her in her house in Hearts Lane opposite the Asbestos Co , next to the Thames Plywood Co (where I worked a few years later). Nan's house was one of two on stilts right beside the railway (steam) of course. Many great times spent, Barking was a great place then.
