All Of Tilehurst - a Memory of Tilehurst.
I moved to 17 Norcot Road in 1948 when I was 6. Along with a crowd from Norcot Road we roamed all over Tilehurst. The clay pits, across country to Purley, Sulham woods was a particular favourite. I went to the Thames via the Roebuck with my dad fishing. I first went to the Laurels, School Road, then Park Lane. At the age of eleven I went to Ashmead School in Northumberland Avenue. My uncle ran Wedlocks butchers in School Road. My dad was a milkman for Job's. Our house had a monkey puzzle tree in the front garden, as did our neighbours. Their names were Fred and Ada Rogers and they kept pigs at the rear of their back garden. After leaving school I went to Pulsometer Pumps. Leaving there I joined the R.A.F. When I was demobbed, I went to R.O.F Burghfield for 28 years.
