The Pits And The Heath - a Memory of Hounslow.
Alan Benfell, born 43. Moulton Avenue near Wellington School/Sutton Lane. Went to Wellington until about 52 then moved to Marshall Close off Wellington Road South. Went to Grove road for a couple of years then on to SGGS (Black & White). Spent most of my early days over "the pits" near Lampton Park or on Hounslow Heath. Avid bird watcher and crawling things..When I went to Grove Road School, my parents omitted to tell them or Wellington that we had moved, so I arrived unannounced. They gave me a spelling test and I spelt pneumonia wrong (missed off the "p"). Allocated to the second class. Whirlwind days then.
