Ashford - a Memory of Ashford.

I went to Ashford Grammar School and before that Echelford. We used to go to that freezing cold swimming pool!. We had to jump in. I lived in Manor Road opposite the golf course. My sisters and brother and our friends spent many hours playing on the golf course, climbing trees, finding golf balls and selling them to other golfers for 2/6d. On the day my sister got married a golf ball came through our lounge window! The repair was paid for by the golf club. The road was unmade and a cul de sac so a great place to play. When it was resurfaced in the 60's it became a favourite place for learner drivers to practice 3 point turns.
