  • If my memory serves me right both bungalows were in the Winter Gardens area and Concorde Road was a grass track road,a right turning as you headed towards Lunns Stores from the village direction? CHURCH PARADE….. Way back in 1947 my family and I lived in a large wooden bungalow that had been built set up on huge corner piers three feet above ground level, Five steps upto our front door and on summer evenings Mum,two sisters and myself would sit on the steps and look out onto endless open fields watching the sunset and we’d chat about ‘our’day. Church Parade incidently in those days also had a grass track road . I also remember the excitement when NEW Road was built by lots of Irish workmen who would joke with us group of youngsters as we made our way to Long Road Junior school. All the Bungalows were ‘well spaced’ from their neighbours and some appeared to be simply ‘dotted’ in fields. A Magical place to have grown up in 1947. ….and then eventually the first Bus service to Winter Gardens commenced….. From then on in bad weather at least we didn’t have to make our way to school across muddy fields! Winter Gardens in those days was an idylic place for children to grow up and give their imagination free rein.

  • I have some letters my grandfather wrote from Rosedean in 1937. He was convalesing there and going to Rochford hospital. He was living there with his 2 sisters who later died in the canvey floods. If any body have any moor information I would love to hear.
