Handley Page Estate - a Memory of Bricket Wood.
My father was transferred to Handley Page, Radlett from London in 1955. We moved to Bricket Wood where I lived until I got married in 1970. Remember playing on the swings and roundabout on the green, which was opposite Lawrence's bakery. The times I got fresh bread from them for my mother, and started to eat it! Used to walk to school to Mount Pleasant Lane infant/junior school. We never worried about walking that distance as long as we were with our friends. I used to have a Saturday job in the post office and general stores in South Riding, which was owned by two spinster sisters.
