Childhood Treasured Places

A Memory of Box Hill

Visiting Box Hill brings back many happy family memories. I come from Manchester & we used to visit my aunt & uncle who moved from Kingston to Leatherhead. I loved swimming & this has always been one of my favourite places. I still visit the area when I go south. These memories cover the 60s & early 70s. Lots of picnics, ball games & walks kept everyone thoroughly occupied & happy. How times have changed!!!
