Chip Shop @ The Mafeking Hero

A Memory of Bishop's Waltham

I grew up in Waltham and have many memories of my years spent there. I loved this picture because I lived on Ridgemede , which was just down the road from the pub & we used to go and get fish & chips from the chip shop on a Saturday evening. The chip shop was in the part of the pub that extends out, with the black little door! Nice little trip down memory lane
