Life On The Quay

A Memory of Bradwell on Sea

I was born at Bradwell on Sea waterside in 1958 and remember the quay very well. Much of my growing up days were spent playing on the very quay in the photo. In the summer we would leap into the water from the quay which was by then furnished with a steel frame which we called the bars. Bradwell waterside was a great place to grow up in, as was Bradwell. My family have all moved from Bradwell now but we all go back from time to time as we all have such happy memories of living there. I was fortunate to grow up at Bradwell with a good bunch of friends, there was the mill end lot, Trev, Bobby and Brendan, Carrots from Westwick, Nick, Mick, Phil, Alan and later Neil from the waterside and
Basher and Paddy and of course Bridgey from the village, not forgetting Big Al and Cubby. We were all a good bunch of friends who had many adventures growing up in Bradwell
