Abbey Buildings

Have been searching for a few years now for some photos of Abbey Buildings and came across these. Have marked where we use to live. Has bought back a thousand happy memories of my childhood growing up in Bermondsey. The photo that shows the entrance to the flats has damaged railings and this was due...

Re: Tommy Steele and things

I remember the blond haired kid as I think he lived behind me in Abbey Buildings and we all remember him saying that he's being paid £50 for starring in a Tommy Steele film! Great memories for everyone! Does anyone know if this video can be purchased anywhere? Have tried the usual places like Amazon...

I can remember vividly me and my brother struggling to carry home a huge plastic bag full of broken biscuits over my shoulders on a Friday evening. These were the throw- out biscuits that nobody wanted, but it wa...

Re: Dunton Road True Love

Picture 097 copy.jpg When I was a nipper, 11 years or so, I fell madly in love with a girl at St Josephs School called Tina. When I found out that she lived on Dunton Road in the Ash House estate only about a mile from where I lived I decided to walk our pet dog every night, weekends too, past her ...

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...
