Leeming Road/Aycliffe Road

A Memory of Borehamwood

After the Co op supermarket in Leeming Road was a chemist also owned by the Co op, if you then turned right you came into Aycliffe Road where there were more shops, first was a bakers called Emerys, then a greengrocers called E Baggs. Next was a mini supermarket called Centra (run by Redge & Molly Blanchard and their son Steven) next to them was Gaskells butchers and finally a fish and chip shop, then it was Torworth Road that gave a rear access to all these shops for
deliveries etc.
