Burghfield Common

A Memory of Burghfield Common

I was born and bought up in Normoor Road, Three Firs Way, Burghfield. I went to Blands, Garlands and then Willink. My mum, her sister and brother all went to Mrs Blands school on Reading Road in the early 50's. My surname then was Earley and I loved living in Burghfield, I still miss it but I still take my son over to the park in Recreation Road. I remember the coal man, Wellers van and Clifford milk float.
