Church Street Weybridge c.1965 - a Memory of Weybridge.

The 'modern' building in the middle of the picture is the telephone exchange not blending in with the rest of the scenery! The bus stop was for Weybridge's only 'red' bus route the 219 from Kingston Bus Garage to Weybridge Station or during working hours extended to Vickers Aircraft factory, then British Aircraft Corporation now defunct. Not visible in the picture, but to the right of the cars is the back road to Addlestone, down past the Queens Head and across the river. Our family home was a bit farther on to the left in Limes Road, a cul-de-sac of about 20 semi-detached houses built in about 1910/1912 with Lewis's motor cycle shop at the end of the road. Beyond the lamp standard was Luxfords - a removal business, a confectioners/sweet shop and a jewellers amongst other small businesses.
