Living In Wickford - a Memory of Wickford.

I lived in Wickford until 1963. My sisters and I would walk down London Road to the high street, first stopping at the little sweet shop and then looking into the windows of Prentice. I got my first 2 wheeler there in 1954.

We would go the pictures in what later became Woolworths, the site of my first Saturday job.

The Coop was in the high street and was the busiest shop.

My dad had Barclays account number 2.
