Prefabs In Ripple Road - a Memory of Barking.
I was born in Upney Hospital in 1950, my first home was Blatchford Close, in the Prefabs, Ripple Road opposite the Cemetery, I have been searching for photos or information, but as yet have had no luck, hoping that someone might know of them. I moved to Thames View Estate in 1955, Barking was a great place to grow up in, we didn't have much money, but kids made their own fun for free, remember walking over the marshes thinking we were at the seaside when we got to the river.
