Durell Road, Martins Corner - a Memory of Barking.
What a place! If you're not born here, run for the hills! But I love it, I still see faces of long ago that do too, or why didn't we move away a long time ago!! My mum and dad were the best, I never got hit by them but this place turns you when all your school days are who's the best at beating up others. I encounted this as did all the children I went to school with, nice children turned by kids that got beatings from their dads and mums. People live here because there's no chance of moving to a better place, not because the parks so good or the houses are solid, I wish for one I had a childhood without a beating at school or on the street, and I feel so bad for the ones that got it in turn from me.
