Glebe Road Ashtead - a Memory of Ashtead.
I was born in Epsom and lived in Glebe Road from 1968 - 1980. My earliest memory was fishing at the pond, the wonderful swans, smurf stickers at Roundhills garage at the end of our road, humbugs (for free) at Goldings and Suzie the beige Boxer dog! I remember 1/2 penny, 1 penny and 2 penny sweets on trays at the sweet shop, skatebording with my brother Martin and friends down the sleep slope in Glebe Road and horseriding at Vale Lodge in Leatherhead. Blackberry picking at the common, the Minor Bird at the Copper Kettle cafe too. We had lovely neighbours and dear friends. Happy days at Barnet Wood Lane and Ashtead Middle school before a move to Lincolnshire, my heart remains in Ashtead!
