Memories of Stanwell Moor


My grandad, William George Stacey aka "George", moved into 37 Southern Cottages when it was newly built in 1933/4. He was a builder and worked locally. He and the family stayed there until his death in 1951. I would love to hear from anyone who has any memories to share about him or the Stacey family. Look forward to any information, however small!

The year I was born at Ashford Hospital my mother and father were tenants at the Hope public inn.  June and John Nicholson and June's mother Beatrice Porter lived there and brought me up.   Mrs Porter had once lived at Cheltham Villas, then the Hope pub.  After 9 years here they moved to 130a (...Read full memory)

I remember my granddad, Herbert Lipscombe (aka Jack or Dink), telling me of the times his father, Herbert Lipscombe (1892-1966), used to clean out under the bridge next to the old mill when it used to get clogged up with debris. Also my nan worked at the old mill for Ayers asthma cure and was working the day that the film Genevieve was being filmed and she got to meet the stars of the film.

I lived at Felstead, the house which is in the foreground of the Anchor pub from 1947 until about 1957 with my sister and mum and dad. My cousin lived in the bungalow seen before Felstead. Wonderful memories of living there!!
