Country Memories

A Memory of Brabourne Lees

I was born at Caroland Close and then moved to Bridge House next to John Childs garage; in those days owned by my grandad, Mathew Ward, where my mother worked in the office.
My cousins lived nearby and great fun was had in grandad's orchard, at Woolpack Hill and the village green. When we returned from infant school time was spent in Pemsey farm apple orchards where my mother picked apples. My father worked for Ronnie Martin at Smeeth. I can remember going to feed the horses at Jeanes stables.
