A Memory of Basingstoke

I use to spend some of my summer holidays with my lovely nan. She lived in a house called Swimbrook, it was up Kempshot Lane. It was pulled down years ago. She used to take me to Woolworths to buy a scrapbook and glue - we would catch the bus. I can remember going up some steps in Woolworth and the floors were wooden. She had the biggest garden, and my uncle used to push me round in a wheelbarrow. Such happy times for a girl from the East End of London.
