West Dene Childrens' Home

A Memory of Buckhurst Hill

Hi, my name was Paul Lee back then, when I was at West Dene Childrens' Home back in the early 80`s - it was based on the Palmerstone Road. I am not sure what happend to the childrens' home, I have very mixed memories about the home. I would love to hear from anyone who may of known me from that period of my life. One thing I do know if it wasn`t for the staff and the home itself, god knows where I would of ended up. Paul Miller
