Bretts Farm Romford Rd Aveley - a Memory of Aveley.
I arrived in Aveley in 1957/58 I was herdsman at Bretts Farm, Romford Road and worked for David Watt. Once a year we would take the young cattle through Belhus Park then along Daglen Drive, up Stifford Road to Ford Place, then on to Davey Down's farm for the summer months. We would then bring them back in the autumn. Life was much slower then and hardly any traffic - I still live in Aveley with my wife and we had the farm shop in Romford Road for years. Then in 1980 we moved to our present address at New Farm, Sandy Lane; have fond memories of Aveley. For a short time we lived in the Old Maltings, Aveley High Street.
