Memories of Eling
The tall chimney in the photo was Toby Stotes bakery oven. My grandmother regarded his as 'proper' bread. Next to the bakery was a farrier or blacksmiths yard. I remember during the war that landing craft were assembled on the quayside - a spectacle which was a magnet for 8-year old boys. We passed this way every Sunday making our way from the Sunday School in Rumbridge Street to Eling Church.
Did anyone know my late grandma Dorothy who was married to Mr Edwards in 1940, living at 39 or 36 Ewell Road, Eling, who at that address gave birth to twin boys registered Edwards, Micheal and Mervyn who was my dad.
