Bexleyheath Growing Up

A Memory of Bexleyheath

I used to live in Oakland Road off of the High Street. I also used to go to Uplands Road infants and Junior School. Saturdays were spent at Saturday Morning Pictures at the ABC cinema. I also remember Hides department store. After school, we used to stop off at the fish and chip shop and ask for bits left over from the chips, which were free and also the bakers for yesterdays cakes, which were a penny! I used to swim in the outside pool at Danson Park and indoor pool at Crook Log. I used to play in the swing park at the back of the cemetery that ran parallel to Oaklands Road. I went back a few years ago and was surprised to see the swing park is now a bowling alley and Oaklands Grove is cut in half by a one way system! How times have changed.
