Memories of Stroud

I was sent to a childrens' home in Stroud in 1955/6 and left in 1959 as my mother had TB of the lung and was in the nearby Standish Hospital.

Can anyone help with the name of the man that lived at Toadsmore (on the road between The Bourne & Eastcombe) Who sold & supplied Logs.

I lived at 22 Church Street until 1963. My family moved from there in November 1963 as the property was being demolished to make way for a car park! I remember watching from the bedroom window a huge fire which burnt down the Gaumont Cinema.

The Harman family lived in "The Fields" on the Description of Emumeration District, listed on the 1851 census. "The Fields" was listed between Bowbridge Lane and the "Middle of Strouds Hill".
