I remember well taking the bus up from Westcott with my grandmother on a Sunday afternoon in the 1940's to have tea and cakes at Grimm's Kitchen right opposite the famous clock in Abinger Hammer .

I used to visit Abinger Hammer in the late 60s early 70s with my Nan and Granddad and Mum to see my Great-Auntie Mabel and Great-Uncle Jack. They lived next door (or next but one?) to the Post Office and Uncle Jack worked in the Watercress beds.
