Cranham - a Memory of Upminster.

I was born at 1,The Crescent, Cranham in 1956. The house was a small Victorian one with a large back garden and orchard which had a tiny run down Gazebo in it, the orchard backed onto the "Brickies", where we used to make clay bowls and have mud fights. The Crescent was a dusty pebbled road. I went to the Bell school in Upminster until I was 7 when we moved to Ingrave. Happy times.

From approx 1958 to when I left home in 1974 I lived at 88 Macon Way,then 29 Brunswick Ave, I used to walk down The Crescent to go to school at Hall Mead. I never knew the history of the Crescent.I remember the Brick Fields as well. Great times were had in Cranham.
