I lived iin 6 Stormont Road Lavender Hill Battersea from 1939 to 1964. My mother was a widow. I have one brother. The rent in 1939 would have been ten shillings a week. If ant one reads this, I now live in Vancouver Canada and my e-mail address is and I went on line to try and find out what 6 Stormont sold for when it was built. The houses Nos. 6 4 8 12 etc to the corner where Marney Road starts were in my opinion protected during the war years, by a very large spiral church next door but one to number 4 and I am no religious. I went to school from five years old to Wix?s Lane. If this is read, please send a reply, and thank you.

Fibre glass factory which made large figures etc for fairgrounds was down a mews which no longer exists.
Prefabs on the bend where Doreen, a friend of my mums lived with her two daughters.
Alan and Alex who?s mum and dad were also friends of my parents lived near the priory pub. the pub is now residential flats.
Alex was another boy who lived just a couple of doors along from me as was Colin.
The house was knocked down in 1964 and the site is now an adventure playground.
The only thing left I recognise is my old sycamore tree which grew in my garden which I could often be found climbing.

Never fell out of it !

I used to live at no. 27 from 1950-1961. My family had the large room on the ground floor a bedroom on the 2nd floor and a room in the attic. There were several other families who came and went over the years, as well as landlords. We had a landlord for a time called ?Gethin?. I used to play with my friends in the road as there were few cars then. We used to use the lamppost next to house as a cricket wicket and it?s still there. I can remember swings in the green and a parkeeper there with a coal brazier in the winter. I was a choirboy at St Barnaby?s, I remember a bagwash near the church when the houses were demolished to build the estate. There used to be a row of shops and I particularly remember one called ?gallies? a sweet shop where you could get a penny drink and they put gas in it for you. Schools I went to were Priory Grove, then Al

I don’t come from Kenwyn Road (I live in the United States) but my grandmother, Winifred Mary Print grew up on Kenwyn in the early 1900’s. Her father Israel Print was a Veterinary Surgeon in the area. His business was the Veterinary Infirmary & Shoeing Forge, 96 Wurtemberg Street, Clapham. and New Road Balham. I wonder if there are any Prints around Clapham today?

Colliers Wood

Colliers Wood is an area in south London, England in the London Borough of Merton.

The "Colliers" referred to in Colliers Wood were charcoal burners, in the days when the area had a few more trees.

There was a mill on the River Wandle at Colliers Wood continuously from the time of the Domesday Book, until the last mill was replaced by a hypermarket in the late 1980s.
The hypermarket filled part of the Merton Board Mills "factory" site, the rest is known as Merton Abbey Mills. Developed by Merton Council it contains a market,shops and pub(The William Morris). The remainder of the site now consists of modern housing blocks, a gym, fast food outlets and hotel.

The hypermarket adjoins the site of Merton Priory, which was built in the 12th century and was the place at which St Thomas Becket was educated.

Merton Priory gives its name to Merton College, Oxford: its founder, Walter de Merton was educated at Merton Priory c. 1230.

Admiral Lord Nelson bought a house - Merton Place- in the area now known as Colliers Wood . He lived here with Emma Hamilton prior to the Battle of Trafalgar.

William Morris had his studios at Merton Abbey Mills (now in the Colliers Wood locality) in the late 19th Century.

Colliers Wood tube station is on the Northern Line of the London Underground between South Wimbledon tube station and Tooting Broadway tube station.
