Met my future wife, Janet, whose parents lived on the caravan site behind Rose Lawn ran by Rev Nicholson. I was a biker, Janet's parents disapproved of motorbikes, so whilst courting I used to bring her home at night & park at the Hatch Gate pub at the bottom of the hill & walk her home up to the caravan site. We married 1966 at Burghfield Church. Moved into a caravan on the site - no bathroom, a toilet that had to be emptied every week, in a shed next to the caravan & a cess pit dug in the garden for drainage. Had to move away in 1968 when we started a family, but a happy start & still together. Often visit Burghfield as Jan's mum still lives Burghfield Common - doesn't change much.
