I lived in Arundel Road with my family from around 1950. There was a house with a lake and houseboat at the back of our land. We had to boil our water in a copper for baths, it was outside in a little outbuilding and we had to light a fire under it. Our water came from a well in the garden. I went to New Thundersley Primary and was taught by Miss Adkins. I am now living back almost in the spot where I grew up, just off Arundel Road.
The black and white photos of Arundel Road were taken when it had just been cleared for building work and the coloured ones, taken in 1976, are of the road when building work was completed. It looks a little different now as the telephone box is no longer there and the post box has been moved.
