Blindley Heath, The Main Road c.1955
Memories of Blindley Heath
I got married at Blindley Heath Church in June 1971, Mr Clark was the vicar at that time. It was a very hot day our wedding reception was held at Crowhurst Village Hall, a very pretty setting, my parents chose well. They lived at The Villars, Blindley Heath....happy days. Christine Cox
I lived on Carlton Road, across the A22 from Danemore Lane, close to Anglefield Corner from 1963 to 1981 and have very fond memories of a fun childhood, lots of friends, and a lot of fields, streams and lakes to play in. I went to Oxtead County, and then did my apprenticeship at Monotype in Salfords while going to Redhill ...Read full memory
I lived in Danemore Lane just a few yards from Anglefield Corner from 1939 until I was married in 1961. I remember having to wait for ages to cross the road at weekends because there was so much traffic. As my father was a special constable he would be on duty to direct the traffic at weekends.
I can remember walking from the village school to Gibbs stores with my mother so that she could place her weekly grocery order and pay for the last week's delivery. She did this on a Monday and the goods were delivered on a Friday.
