Priors Hill - a Memory of Wroughton.
My greatest memory was the summer evenings during the 1976 heat wave playing 123 & in in Manor Close. I spent many an evening pulling the pines from my clothes having hidden in the conifurs outside 12 priors Hill.
We were never board if I remember, sometimes mischeveous but never board (nothing wrong with a bit of apple noggin).
I remember when the Ellendune Hall was being built, climbing on the mounds of earth throwing lumps of mud at each other.
I also remember doing my paper round in Bakers Road and being chased by a collie dog belonging to the Hawkes's. I'm sure it used to hear me coming and stand on that wall waiting. (Never did like Lassie).
The characters around at this time were something else, Colin Smith, John Banting, The Hatheralls, Bill and Ida Morton who ran The Swan to name but a few.
Great days and i miss them terribly.
Hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane.
