Down Memory Lane

Mr A Roberts Reminisces

Mr A Roberts of Winston Drive, Stoke D'Abernon reminisces:

  • In the 1930's Tilt Road from the cemetery gates to Ashford Farmhouse was all mud until the Canadian troops improved it.
  • Until 1923/4 cricket was played on The Tilt over what is now Stoke Road. The cottages on The Tilt were protected with chicken wire!
  • A Hurricane test pilot (Captain Hindmarsh) crashed a hurricane in St.George's Hill in 1938.
