Box Hill

A Memory of Box Hill

I lived in a caravan at Box Hill when I worked in Epsom with the race horses. I had a friend called Irene who went out with a boy who also worked in racing his name was Bill Senior. Irene lived at the post office and went to live in Australia (I think) its such a long time ago. Her parents move to look after a care home.

I remember going to a little horse show and riding a pony for someone I don't know who.

I also remember driving a pony and trap that belonged to someone.

I do remember the Wimpy Bar and the Burford Bridge. I think there were stepping stones over a stream somewhere there.
