Re: Abbey Street

What a great picture of the Royal George Pub. I remember as kids we would scour the local bins behind Abbey Buildings looking for empty beer bottles so we could return them to the Royal George via a tiny room at the front of the pub which was the off license, we were given a biscuit as a return depo...

Re: Abbey Buildings Boy!

Hi Merv.
What a great story about the lives of you and your family in and around Bermondsey! Sometimes my generation and others don't really appreciate what thousands of people like yourself went through during the blitz. It was a pleasure to read your story Merv.

All the best!

Re: Grange Road

What a great photo! I recall on many occasions me and my mates would spend most of the day in that derelict pub just mucking about and if memory serves me this was also the entrance to the Spa Park too where I got bashed in the face by my brother on the swing one day and had to walk all the way to G...

Re: Grange Road Swimmers

As kids going swimming on a Saturday morning was so much fun, not only did we get out of our parents hair for the day we also got a weekly wash at the same time! I remember on one occasion when we were told to get out of the pool we would always take our time or hide in the pool at the deep end and ...

Re: The Grange

We use to hang out with the Wards who lived in the first house on Grange Walk next to the Red Cow pub. Had great fun running in and out of the pub being chased by the landlord and his staff! Gerrard Ward was one of my mates that lived there, I wonder whats he doing now and how his life has been?

Re: Abbey Street

Found this old photo of Abbey Buildings taken during or after the war. Apparently there was some bomb damage to the roof of the flats in this picture taken during WW2 but I cant really see in this except for some damage in the foreground. Picture 079.jpg I took a recent trip to Bermondsey taking lot...

Re: PEEK FREAN.

When we lived in Bermondsey in the 60's my mum got a job in Peak Freans and every Friday night she would come home from work with a huge plastic bag full of broken biscuits that were not for the general public, but was ok for us! Me and my brother really looked forward to Friday evenings :D :D :D :D

Abbey Buildings Boy!

Glad to see this great site up and running again. My is Pat Nolan and we grew up in Bermondsey in the 60's and lived in Abbey Buildings (Irish railway workers housing), Abbey Street. I have so many happy memories of my childhood there but too many to mention. I went to St Josephs Primary School then...
