I lived in Faygate Crescent, Bexleyheath. Schools I remember are Upton Rd, Gravel Hill and Bexleyheath Secondary Modern. I have fond memories of the girls school across the playing fields from Graham Rd (can't remember it's name) but I think it was divided by a chain mail fence and a footpath with locked gates to prevent us visiting the girls and them from visiting us. I remember playing in "The Warren" Bloomfield Rd and the Bluebell Wood off Gravel Hill. My first girlfriend was Glory Dixon, she lived a couple of doors down from me and I will never forget her. My best mate was John Grimwood also of Faygate Crescent. My family and I left Bexleyheath in 1960 ( I was age 12) to live in Australia and I still live there today in NSW. I have many more memories and I may add them here as I recall them. I am 66 yrs young now. I think I remember a teacher by the name of Mr. Laniardo? He used to teach fencing at B'heath Sec. Mod. amongst other subjects. I think the infamous Kenny Noyse might have been in the same class as me but I am not certain.
