Memories of Weybridge


When I was in the choir at St. Michaels and all Angels in the late 1950's we used to line up on either side of the path in front of the memorial for the wreath laying. 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.

I had a boy in my class at school who lived in this house. It always seemed very mysterious to me. Leslie Hoy, I wonder where you are now. We also used to swim regularly at the New Bridge a couple of hundred yards up from Eyot House. I remember the island the house is built on had a bridge connecting it to the tow path. It had a gate and you had to have a key to gain access to Eyot House.

My mother, sister Valerie and I lived here for a while in the early '60s. It was divided into flats at the time and was incredibly creepy. There was no bridge at that time and although we had a ferryman during the day, we had to row ourselves across to the towpath when we wanted to go out at weekends or after (...Read full memory)

I used to work for Burden and Parker in Church Street as a radio and television engineer from 1963 to 1966 and remember walking past these shops twice a day to the cafe just around the corner for our tea breaks.
