Newly Wed - a Memory of Wickford.

I had lived in Basildon and married a Dagenham man in 1975, we moved to a turning called Woodfield on the newly built Moody Estate off Nevedon Road.  To go to the shops or rail station, we had to pass Hall's Corner.  I remember a green grocers (where I left behind a bag of tomatoes I had just brought), a newsagent and art shop being there back then.  I use to love going to the market just behind the shops.  We moved to Ilford in 1981 (he wanted to move as the rail season tickets were getting expensive).  I still hope to move back to Wickford one day.
