Memories of Wickford, St Catherine's Church c1955

St Catherine's

I remember walking past this church to visit my grandparents in Highcliffe Road. There was a short cut just before the church; I remember there were nice trees that overhung the pathway and it was lovely in summer. Further down the hill is the Wickford C of E Infants School.

My Sisters Christening

I remember going there for my sister's christening in 1956 (our family name was Markham) and also belonging to the youth club, which was run by the curate. I only remember the vicar as a rather stern man. I also belonged to the Sunday School which was run from the School down the road.

Weddings And Funerals

I used to walk past this church on the way to visit my grandparents in Highcliffe Road. There was a path which lead up behind the church and onto a back road to Highcliffe. My schoolfriend Jill married in this church in 1980. My great-grandfather was buried here in 1949 under the yew tree, my great-grandmother joined him in 1991 and grandfather's ashes were placed here also in 1991. There are numerous graves which relate to members of the Wickford community including one elderly lady who lost both her sons during WW2.

At Littlemeade there was no running water, no electricity, no gas, the source of ...Read full memory

Sweet Shop

Just along from Halls corner past the police station on your right are two shops. One was a sweet shop run by my great grandparents - Orrock. This must have been in the 1940s as I remember my mother telling me about it. My great-grandfather died before I was born but I remember my great-grandmother as she lived to a ripe old ...Read full memory
