Charles Earl Lime Kiln - a Memory of Aldborough.

My great-grandfather owned the Lime Kiln in the village of Aldborough. When my grandfather Charles Earl was a young man he decided to leave the village with a friend and cycle to London to seek his fortune. They arrived in Pinner where my grandfather met his future wife (she was landlady of a pub). He went to work on the building of the London Underground. I have visited Aldborough on several occasions and I'm delighted to see the two pubs that my grandfather used to drink in as a boy are still there.
