This scene of Queens Road brings back many many memories for me. First of all, when very young and at the early months of WW2, probably in the late Autumn with falling light in the after school hours. Somehow I had come across or discovered the quite elegant shops there all on one side that one would frequent when being taken (...Read full memory)

My parents and I lived in Addlestone, and when I was about 5 or 6 I had to have my tonsils and adanoids removed at the cottage hospital and not St Peter's. There was only 2 of us in the ward a boy about my age and myself, there was always a jugs of orange and lemon squash on the table but we only drank the orange.

I wonder if a choir still attends this ceremony as St. Michael's church has been demolished and the last time I visited Weybridge the junction at the memorial had been altered and the path no longer exists.
Sad to say my last sight of this'green' was in 1981, from the 'new' units, gracious by modern standards, addressed as Baker St., but having this exact view from from the quite elegant sitting rooms. A dear friend and 'almost m-in-law' retired there from Laleham at that time. I had moved overseas but still being (...Read full memory)

I believe she lived in the Surrey area for most of her life but after the war did not reside at Hanger Hill House. Would anyone have records of the area from (...Read full memory)
