Old Maps of Chessington

Historic Maps of Chessington and the local area.

I do not remember which year that I used to be a choir boy at St Mary about 1952-1956,there used to be myself buddy MacAlpin and michael MacAlpin and Colin Watson,both my parents are buried in the church yard along with my Grand mother .

The land opposite the shops in the picture was used by a visiting fair in the summer,because it was so boggy the used railway sleepers to put under their rides, in the winter the land used to flood and my brother and I used to punt the sleepers over the water,only about a foot at the deepest point, great fun.
