Old Maps of Forty Hill

Historic Maps of Forty Hill and the local area.

My Mother,Vera Wynne,worked here of an evening.My recollection is this would have been about 1955,and i certainly remember her mentioning Wally Reid. A year or two later i started working for Mr/s Pearce as a paperboy,delivering 2 rounds to the residents of Clay Hill and Baker Street.Happy Days! John Wynne.

I used to play piano in The Goat on Saturday nights, I was only 15, but don't tell anyone! Wally Reid was the Governor, and his son Norman used to play drums too! We lived in Russell Road, number 69, and opposite our house was a gravel pit. We could see the backs of the houses in St. George's Road across the pit, which was quite a playground for us kids.
