Hazel Road - a Memory of Woolston.
My father was born in 1930 and lived in Hazel Road, opposite the Supermarine factory. He left in the 1930s as his father, who was in the Navy, was moved to Coventry to become a recruiting officer.
At the beginning of this year, I had the experience of taking him back to his old road, and where is house used to stand is now intersected by the Woolston toll bridge. Whilst looking at the floating bridge chains, we were fortunate enough to bump into a gentleman who had worked at the Supermarine factory.
I haven't managed to find a picture of his house on the street yet, but I have just seen an aerial image of the Supermarine factory after it was bombed on the BBC documentary, showing his house. I am hoping that somebody might have more images or information about this area.
