The Queens Head

The Queens Head is where my Mum and Dad had their first date, after meeting on Burley Street, and went on to live in Burley and have six of their seven children, before moving to Surrey.

Tea Rooms

My sisters and I would spend our pocket money of 6d old money at the shop, on a Saturday, and walk past here everyday we walked to and from school.

Manor Hotel

Our Dad worked as the gardener for the Manor Hotel, and they lived at Park Lodge, on the edge of the grounds, where my two older sisters were born.
