Lily Meade - a Memory of Alcombe.

I grew up in the house opposite the Brittania Inn from early 1940 until about 1960. The shop next door, in the right of the picture, was a grocers shop, Stovolds. I remember spending the day with them watching the Coronation, as not many people had television in those days.
