Worms Heath Near Chelsham - a Memory of Chelsham.
I wanted to ask if anyone can recall the gravel pits that existed at Worms Heath near Chelsham, I’m sure that they were operated by a company named Hoveringham, they used orange Foden trucks.
I lived in Selsdon during the 1970’s and went to school at Riddlesdown, some weekends a pal and I would cycle to Worms Heath where other boys rode there motorcycles, all quite illegal but completely out of harms way.
The pits were located approximately a quarter of a mile passed Slines Oak road heading towards Westerham, looking on Google earth today there is absolutely no sign what so ever that they existed and they are not identified on the OS map of that time.
I hope that somebody can reply and confirm there existence, it will prove that I’ve not lost my marbles and imagined the whole thing!
May be you were one of the motorbike riders and can recall the times there?
