Those Were The Days - a Memory of Wheatley.

Walking along the London Road, in all weathers to the primary school in Church Road, Dodds shop opposite and if we had been good we could buy a penny sweet or a jamboree bag. We had our dinners in Bell Lane, all sat on benches, and what an atmosphere, it was great. We had an outside swimming pool and by God it was cold, but we had no choice. Wheatley has certainly changed in size, but my road where I lived, the Avenue, hasn't and my parents are still there.
