Memories of Epping, the Wake Arms Inn c1955

Motorcycle Days.

I can remember the Wakes Arms car park being full of motor cycles & riders most summer evenings & weekends. It was the mecca for the motorcycle enthusiasts to show off their gleaming new machines or their custom built motorbikes. Not much beer was consumed as the younger element were well aware of the dangers, but the cafe next to the pub did a roaring trade as they provided a wash down point for the motorbike scrambler fraternity. Many a friendship was started around that water standpipe. An ex Triumph100 rider.

Burned Down

I worked in the pub, restaurant, whatever, after it had replaced the pub, what a crying shame that the pub had gone. Anyroad, there was a massive fire which started in the kitchens, and I had to go on site to try to watertight what was left of the roof after the fire, I actually have a load of photos of this.

Disco

My memories of the Wake Arms pub are, travelling from Harold Hill every Friday night, me, my mates and girlfriends too, to the heavy metal disco they held at the Wake Arms, drinking more than I should have then driving home, but what a brilliant night, never no aggro. A great memory.

My name when I knew him was Joyce Bazen and I lived in Herrett street Aldershot. If anyone knows him or anything I would love to hear, I check in frequently maybe one day here's hoping

Shopping In Epping

I love this photo - those old cars ! I don't remember the old building with the wooden balconies. It must have disappeared between 1955 and the first half of the 1960s. Monday has always been market day in Epping. Years ago there was a bit of a cattle market at the top end near the church, but I can't recall whether I ...Read full memory

Ann Shakespeare Youngs

This lady was my auntie married to my dad's brother. She originally lived at Spring House, 62 Bower Hill, Epping and in the fifties my aunt and uncle built their bungalow in the back garden of Spring House, sold Spring House, and lived in the bungalow until their deaths. Ann Shakespeare Youngs was born at The Spotted Dog Public House in Ivy Chimneys in 1905. She died in 1998.
