Late 40,S Early 50's - a Memory of Tilehurst.

I grew up in West Reading but had relatives in Westwood rd and Armor rd.
Would go to visit them on the bus and always remember what we called "the buckets" which went across Norcot Hill. I guess they are what carried the clay from one side to another but not sure I knew that at the time.
Later played soccer at the Rec.
My uncle who lived at Felton Croft Armor rd owned 2 wet fish shops along the Oxford rd
In West Reading and later the Red Lion pub on Peppard common mr Henley.
Somehow those days seemed a lot simpler
