The Parade Swimming Baths

A Memory of Brentwood

Hi, I was an evacuee & I lived in Cresent Road. I used to go to Brentwood Senior Boys School at Doddinghurst Road. On Fridays we always went to the fish and chip shop - chips and crackling! I would always go to the swimming baths after school - it cost one penny. I remember when the school got bombed during the war - and so did Myrtle Road near the station. I also spent many hours playing at Brentwood Common near the pond. Does anybody else remember the war years at Brentwood? I also got to know 2 girls who helped me with my paper round, Rose and Grace Hyde, they lived near Hartswood Road and Woodmans Road. All the best, Jim.
