The Pantiles And The Broadway

A Memory of Bexleyheath

I was born in Hurlingham Road, off The Pantiles during the war. The air raid shelters were still there for many years, and the allotments. School was a walk to Bedonwell Primary, joining others on the way. Weekly trips to Bexleyheath Broadway shopping and I remember there was a tea shop somewhere halfway up where occasionally mum would treat us to iced cakes. The Trolley Buses were also a memory and buses from the Broadway to Dartford Grammar for school. The photos certainly bring back a lot of memories. Now living in Australia, so its a long way away. And a wonderful big oak tree at the 122 bus stop outside Feakes and Richards Estate Agents.
