Where I Lived

A Memory of Great Bookham

I lived in Lower Shott from my birth in 1968 until I got married in 1994, my parents Pam and Tony Read lived here until 2010 when they moved down to Felpham. My Mum was born in Bookham and lived down Keswick Road, my parents moved to 25 Lower Shott in 1966, she saw and remembers the many changes of the village.
I remember Tony's (T Cox) the newsagent shop, the greengrocers, the grocers store cannot remember the nice couple that owned it but always remember going up there for my mum and must not forget the Butchers on the corner of the shops owned by the lovely Ken Pillings. It was a nice quiet, safe estate to grow up on - fun times and memories.
