My Playground As A Child - a Memory of Mill Hill.
My name is Ron Sargeant and I lived in Worcester Crescent Mill Hill from11939 until 1964.
Now as to the picture. On the skyline you can see the beginnings of Scratch Woods. At
the point where the photo was taken there used to be a bench seat. Immediately behind
that was a high wire fence which protected the bird sanctuary. This whole are was the
ultimate childrens playground for me and and my many friends from Worcester crescent

his hut next to the pond and the bullet hole in the hut could be seen for years afterwards.
I understand that the top end of the Moat Mount used to be ornamental gardens belonging to
