Hi chellin

You're most welcome.

The park that leads from Morden through to Phipps Bridge is called Morden Hall Park. It still exists as it was then & is still a beautiful place to walk through. Up until recently, the large mill house there on the bridge with the large water wheel on the side was used as a registry office & held an awful lot of weddings.

If I can dig any more pics out of the places in question, I'll post them when I can.

Bye for now!

Oh my God

Where those women are speaking was my Nans house and she always stood at the gate.
And where that truck is pulling in was my Dads yard.

Hi chellin

Glad to have helped.

How strange that the pic is so meaningful to you with the family there!

Just spoke to my hubby & the name of the pub was the Fountain.

Take care x

Hi Doorwoman

Oh of course, it was on Fountain Road wasnt it???
Should have known that.

I have a pic of me at the Queens Coronation in Sibthorpe Road but I dont know how to post it on here, that was 1953.
