  • Instone close

    Thank you for this..we moved there in 1970 when I was 5 years old and much of the estate was still a building site, with huge piles of earth and parts of old runways were still visible, we used to dodge the dumper trucks and explore the air raid shelters, we lived on Instone close for about 10 years or so then moved to Helena close until I was about 18 years old. Lots of memories...good and bad.
    My whole youth was in that concrete.
