Leyton/Leytonstone In The Early60s - a Memory of Leytonstone.

Lived in Leyton in the 60s - Beaconsfield Rd. Went to Newport Junior School, until 1968, then onto Norlington. Fond memories of long summer holidays, playing out till dark, biking over to the hollow ponds, swimming at Cathall Rd baths - the major and minor pools, the huge fair at Easter at Wanstead Flats, the pie and mash shop in West St, just around the corner from my nan's in Mayville Rd. Have not been back for years but will always have fond childhood memories.
