Seymour Villas

I lived at 19 Seymour Villas with my sister Anita through 1940s and 50s. The garden backed on to Betts Park,we climbed over the fence especially when the fair was on and to meet friends at the swings. I think Anita knew Rosemary Youles and I am still in touch with Elise who lived in Seymour Terrace.I used to meet my grandad at the top of the road and ride on his bike handle bars down to ours. He also climbed the fence to play tennis in the Park.

Tremaine Road

Hi, we might be moving to Tremaine Road about half way down. We've been a bit around the area (don't know it well) and it seems quite quiet and nice in the day. We also went to The Mitre and the landlord seemed friendly.

I've checked on a crime stats website and there are a few incidents of anti-social behaviour recorded. Just wondered if that was anything to worry about? Is it okay at night? Safe to walk about? Are there any problems with the pub at night? Looked at my current road and that had similar stats and I've never noticed anything but just wanted to check. Thanks

Orchard Lodge Old People

I lived at the new properties built on the site of the old Orchard Lodge. I lived at 5 Rowan Terrace, Sycamore Grove for 8 years, before I lost it after a relationship breakdown. I always thought I saw someone come downstairs at night, and would call out to my kids to get back to bed, but when I went out towards the stairs/kitchen, no one was there. My kids would be fast asleep in their beds when I checked. Sometimes if I was in the house on my own, I would sit on the computer downstairs and something would hit me on the back, and for 6-8 years (up until we moved) my daughter would have night terrors and would come into me, wide eyed and scared out of her life, and I wasn't allowed to mention the word ghost, or something bad would happen. I was told that it was on the site of an old dairy, and a friend of mine told me she used to go to school at what is now the primary school on William Booth Road. She told me it was a home, and it used to be a bit creepy looking. It appears som

Mystery in Seymour Villas!

Does anyone remember or know anything about the grey stone terrace of Georgian (?) houses at the bottom of Seymour Villas? It was close to the entrance to Betts Park. I walked past it every day in the 1950's on my way to Anerley County Primary School and always wondered how old it was and if anyone still lived there at that time.

Congratulations on your family - and six grandchildren - wow! We have two sons and two lovely daughters in law and the only patter of tiny feet is their four cats!

I will ask Deirdre to view your message 'cos she lives in Sussex. And we live in Wiltshire, same as Anne. I cannot believe the coincidences. I met Ev (nee Florence) for the first time for about 45 years, a few months ago. Just wonderful - not a minute's silence!
