Memories of Langdon Hills
by Pam Watson

     I remember living in Florence Road, before moving to Suffolk in 1968.

     I remember Cottis the bakers. We used to go round the back and get a paperbag with cream in for a few pence. I also remember Peperell's newsagents.

     As a child, my sisters and I used to slide down the white steps near the railway station waiting for dad to come home from work on the train.

     We used to walk to the recreation ground (rec) and spend all day there in the little pool.

     We used to get the train to West Horndon where dad worked, at Neat Castings (Howard Rotovator), every Christmas and go to a party for the employees children that they had each year.
