The Grange Fire

A Memory of Beddington

I too remember the fire and going to see the ruins the day after. I had previously gone there fairly regularly for speech therapy while I was at Holy Trinity Primary School. I vaguely remember the rather ornate internal wooden panelling. At the time of the fire I believe the building also housed a dental office, and the gas cylinders periodically exploded during the fire, as I remember it. We could see the glow in the sky from my bedroom window - we lived on Queenswood Avenue.
