Welcome to London Chingford

Mount School

Yes it was at 64. I was there from 58 to 65 and My brother was there before me. I think he went there when it opened in about 53. I remember Miss Windsor, Mrs Grantham, Mrs Heale and Mrs Bowell . I liked my time there. I passed the 11+ and went to Chingford County High but for the first year I was not taxed as I had already covered it at the Mount. The dinners were in a local cafe. Lots of spam!

Fri Jan 17

Yes I attended the mount school from pos 1956 It was just up the road from where I lived. Do I remember a Mrs Burrell as a teacher? There werent that many.

Thu Jan 16

Kings Dance Studio

I also remember Kings very well, the other lady was called Kathleen. I met my first husband there, most of my friends met husbands/wives there too. Many happy memories.

Fri Aug 09

Was at Lakewood 1973-1975

Don't remember all my teachers except Mrs McLaughlin who was horrible. Some of my friends were Martin Smith, Alison Wilkinson, Deborah Smith; Jennifer (not sure of her last name) and Sam (not sure of his last name). There was also a girl called Holly in our class who was Snow White in the class play and Karen who played a horse.

Wed Jul 10

I remember a lot about Station Road. I was a pupil at Kings School of Dance. Where I gained several medals. Vic and Cynthia King were my teachers I was offered a job with the Dennis Drew School of Dance in Manor Park, but didn't take it up as I acquired a husband. We had our wedding reception at Chasneys. I worked for BUPA above the driving test centre opposite the station. Lived in Sewardstone Road.

Would love to hear news from anybody remembering the late 60's 70's.

Went to school in the late 50's at Richmond House

Was then Janet Benson

KINGS DANCE SCHOOL

I lived in Chingford up to my marriage in 1968. I used to go to the dance school where I learned ballroom dancing and actually still have some of the medals I achieved.

I sadly was taller than the other girls and often had to take the lead, which I hated but then Mr. King would partner me so I could relax and be led, dancing and following his movements as we danced was fantastic.

As I grew older I used to go to the evening dance sessions for teenagers, great fun but could never dare sit down otherwise some 'shortie' was bound to come over and ask me to dance.

Chingford School of Music

Hello, my name is Cherie Ryan nee Kirk, daughter of Gerry Kirk (see posts above) who grew up in Chingford School of Music, Elmdene, The Green. Would love to hear any history of my Uncle Darryl and/or my Grandmother Faith Kirk. I have never had the opportunity to visit London and whilst it was my dream to return with my dad, I don't know if he can manage the trip with his current health. Any stories or even pictures are priceless and I would really appreciate anything. Thanks in advance, Cherie.

Yes - try Ancestry.co.uk has a section named "London Metropolitan Archives" and within that there is a link to London Electoral Registers. If you run a search on a surname and location e.g. Waltham Forest or Epping you will be taken to the electoral rolls with full names and addresses of electors.

To get this far you will need a subscription to Ancestry - but you might get free access in your local library.

Chingford Mount School

I also went there. 1974 until 1979, Mrs Green was the headmistress followed by Mrs Williamson I think.

The teachers I can remember were Mrs Alexander, Mrs Baulkley, Mrs Lumsden, Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Yates.

I was quite happy there, School dinners were terrible though.

Sandra Melton

Hi there Sandra, my memory is rubbish, but I remember the name, did you live in the last house in Hornbeam, I think you must be younger than me, I'm 68, my name was Bond.

Sun Oct 12

Hi I have just found this page on the internet, I think we may know each other as I lived in Hornbeam grove from 1953 untill I moved away when I got married in 1973. My mum lived in the same house untill 2000 .

I also went to Whithall Road primary school from 1958 untill 1964. Then I went to Heathcote school 1964 untill 1968 .

Then I went to work at Boots the chemist in station road.

I have found memories of Hornbeam grove playing in the woods, making camps in the forest & enjoying paddling in the river Ching with my friends .

Also practising in the field for the school sports which I enjoyed. So more memories I could go on & on .

usatoday@hotmail.co.uk

Yes, it was called the Mount School, I went there in 1967 until 1969, we would have stayed but the fees went up. The school was there until 1975 then closed.

We wore a brown uniform and hat and a straw hat in summer. The teachers were quite strict. We had no playground just an old back yard to play in but we went to the park up the road for all our exercise. The school was very small and the main class also served as the Assembly room and Dinner Hall. I have fond memories of the school, as they taught us well. I also met my first boyfriend there!!

Wed Jun 20

I lived in Highams Park in the 70's and it was 'Essex' then! it changed a few years later for no apparent reason. I am not sure of the reason, but neighbours say it was the downfall of Chingford !

Hi Gerry,

I was taught piano by your mother in Chingford in the early 1970's. I now live in central Scotland and have my own music school. Your mother's piano, the Challen baby grand, came to me and still puts many a pupil through their exams. hardly a day passes that I don't think of her as I teach.

Best wishes and I hope this doesn't make you too homesick!
