Eastern Electricity Board Training Centre Harold Hill

A Memory of Harold Hill.

I started at Harold hill in September 1966 as An apprentice electrical fitter.
My lodgings were in Clock house Lane and I went to college at Hornchurch where I spent many a happy hour in the Spencer's Arms.Rushing to Harold Hill station to catch the Southend train on a Friday afternoon brings back nightmares and was glad when I reached 17 and acquired a 1956 Morris minor after passing my test Oh happy days.
I stayed with eastern until 1975 when I moved to North Yorks and started with NEEB as an operational engineer after finally getting my HNC.
I stayed with them untill 2000 when I took the early retirement package and my wife and I sold up and travelled Europe in a 7 metre motorhome . After 4 years we decided to give this life up and settle back into domesticity.
We now liv in County Durham and enjoy the quiet life.
