Widford During The Early 50s. - a Memory of Widford.

Before the days of Widford Industrial Estate we would walk from Writtle Road to Widford Church. My sister and friends would make rush mats for us to sit on by the river. Hawthorn hedges lined the lane, cornfields on Chelmsford side, and grazing on the river side where horses were kept on the first field. Some Saturdays friendly football matches took place on the middle field where teas were served to families from a marquee. Nearer Widford we passed the pig farm then up to the main road. Widford church bells still sound in my memory.
