Hello,

I do apologise if my query has absolutely no relevance whatsoever with you.

I reside in the Kidbrooke area, and was wondering whether you would know someone who could have a look at my precious American cruiser bike.

My brakes would need to have a look at.

Please state your fees OR point me to someone you know

Hadrian Cycling Club

I joined the Hadrian in the early 60's. I was a dedicated cyclist and rode every day to keep fit. I rode 10 mile time trials on the Q21 and never bought the beer afterwards. I worked with Ron Sefton of 34 Nomads and we had an evening race for Forest Hill to Hornimans Museum - and I only won twice. My main bikes were from Youngs Lightweight Cycles in Lee Green - pleasant memories. If anyone would like to contact me please do - is Ron Shaw still with us???? my email address is

Tue Apr 14

Michael, after reading a piece in last week's Sunday Times Magazine re the BBRC, I found the website and found your letter. My name is Carol Britter (nee Young) and I was in your sister's class at Henwick Road School. I remember coming to your home on the occasion of Hazel's birthday and your dad put on a ventriloquist show for us! I also lived with my parents in a prefab in Kelbrooke Crescent which was off the Rochester Way. We moved to Susan Road when I was 18 on the very site of your prefabs and my boyfriend (now my husband) and I, with my parents, spend many happy Friday evenings in the Dover Patrol with a few drinks listening to the pianist. Please remember me to Hazel.

Kidbrooke Village Bus Services

As well as the proposed changes to route 178 and B16 serving Kidbrooke Village this summer. We have asked Transport For London Buses to consider extending route 129 North Greenwich Station (02 Arena) to Greenwich (Cutty Sark) from Greenwich (Cutty Sark) to Kidbrooke Station for Kidbrooke Village and possiblyextended further on to Lewisham Shopping Centre via Kidbrooke Park Road, Lee Green, Lee High Road and Lewisham High Street (Police Station).

We have also asked that route 132 North Greenwich Station (02 Arena) to Bexleyheath Shopping Centre via Eltham serves Kidbrooke Park Road in both directions by doing a loop around Kidbrooke Station Forecourt.

We are waiting for a response on both these suggestions from TFL London Buses, which will improve bus services in the Kidbrooke area.

Also there were civillian fitters and drivers employed at RAF Kidbrooke. As an RAF driver I had many varied outings in and around London ie: Airministry runs, London district movements, driving guards of honour to various functions and living through that dreadfull pea souper of a fog in late 1952.

I served at RAF Kidbrooke from 1951 to 1953, It was then No. 4 MT Coy, Motor Transport also there was a language school running there. It was also living quarters to personnel working at Adastral House in London

I was on 51 MT and am researching the rest of the RAF M T Companies.

Was 4 MT mainly a car service?? What trucks did you use for the Boat boxes?

Do you have any other history of 4 MT.

RAF Kidbrooke

Let me put you straight .

The royal mail site was north of the train line west of kidbrooke park road. Thomas Tallis School is the next plot north of this. The Homebase superstore is located on the old aerodrome as it was locally known. it had 3 or 4 white huts on it the next area noth off that was a large concreted area with steel hoops in it. This was the opposite side of the road from Thomas Tallis. Between this and the Rochester Way was the old Donkey Field Site.

So Terra sounds more correct than you are.

I was a friend of your Dad. He was a great bike rider. I spent a two week touring ride with him in 1956. We visited his relatives in North Wales and liverpool. I now live in America. I used to live at 49 Whetstone Rd in Kidbrooke.

Queens car.

A couple of other correspondents seem satisfied that the Queen was in a closed top car and I certainly remember an open topped car and two disappointed women behind me.

Could there have been someone else in the same procession, say Princess Margaret in an open topped car? A simple mis-indentification as the two women looked very much alike?

The adults behind me certainly seemed to think that we were all looking at the new Queen

Sat Apr 03

Update

As far as the Queens car is concerned, when it drove past me at Shooters Hill, it was certainly an open topped car as a couple of women behind me remarked "she wasn't even bothering to look round or smiling".

Chris, what happened about the wrestling classes?

Sat Apr 03

Reply

Chris,

I said as far as I remember the super market stands where the old RAF base used to be. I used to deliver papers in the area. After moving I didn't see the area for many years.

We'll have to agree to differ on the Queens car but I will amend my original and add that what I meant was several police cars and a massive police cycle escort. The whole convoy was visible from a considerable distance.

Shall we leave the matter at that now?

RAF Kidbrooke

I was posted to No. 4 MT Coy. RAF Kidbrooke in December 1951 till June 1953. Where the school stands now was the Station Headquarters and married quarters. to the left of the main entrance as you go in is the football field where there used to be the Guardroom, fire station, cookhouse and of course our billets. where the tennis courts are now was the vehicle hangar and behind that was the workshops.Accross the the road opposite where the supermarket now stands was the officers mess and towards the railway staion was there garages which I helped to erect. the camp boundary stretched along the pavement almost to the junction where the Dover Patrol pub stood.

KIDBROOKE 41 YRS

Fascinating posts. I lived in Dursley Road from 1948 to 1989. I worked 1964 at Military Branch Books to the left of Kidbrooke Station for 4 years then at the Admiralty in London. The RAF Kidbrooke site right of Kidrooke Tunnel was No1 Barrage Balloon Site during WW2. Later I believe a Maintenance Unit. Now Thomas Tallis school. The MOD Air Publications and Forms Store was to the left of tunnel. Later a Royal Mail Depot. APFS also on other (south) side of road. APFS/Royal Mail sites now Ferrier Estate. APFS had steam later diesel locos I believe on standard gauge and the sites were joined by a bridge under the main road. RAF Loco 111 Aldwyth now at Leeds Industrial Museum or Yaxham(?) I went to Kidbrooke Primary then Charlton Manor. I too awaited the Queen and did not see her. Open or closed top car? Can't remember and it really doesn't matter does it?

Hi Gella

I live close to Birdbrook Road and have founf the area to be very safe, I currently live alone and work long hours, but when I have come back late at night, and in the dark I don't feel scared. The neighbours are all lovely and there is more of a community here than other places in London. I have lived here a year and no regrets about moving here!

RAF Kidbrooke

Terrakunnene you have a faulty memory. RAF Kidbrooke stood on the site of the now Thomas Tallis School. I used to go past the depot en route to/from school and later to/from work in the late 1950s/early 1960s

The site of the now supermarket stood on the site a Royal Mail depot which bracketed BR Kidbrooke and the Kidbrooke Park Road. On the south side of BR Kidbrooke, the Royal Mail depot backed on the River Quaggy which was the northern perimeter of Sutcliffe Park. On the west side of the Kidbrooke Park Road, a coal yard was sandwiched between the railway track and the Royal Mail Depot.

Terra, if you are going to quote facts please get it right.

Coronation

I too was at Kidbrooke Park junior school and attend the Coronation 'procession'. The wait was only 45 minutes and there was no massive police escort - there were only a couple of cars and and a few police outriders. The road was almost empty.

Westhorne Manor School

Westhorne Manor, an Eltham based secondary school never was an all-boys school - it was co-ecducational. I attended this particular school from 1955 till 1960. During this period I was a prefect; played goalkeeper and full-back for the football team. I frequently see one of the girls who was in the year below mine as she is a nurse at the NBS where I donate blood. In my class was a pretty girl named Kay Thatcher. There was two sisters in the school with the surname of Page - the first name of one of them was Gwen. Audrey Smith, another pretty girl, was in the year or two lower than me. I don't think the girls would like you calling them boys; or can't you tell the difference?

Fri Jul 03

Coronation 1953

Ha, Ha! That is the oldest con-trick in the book, you are transferring your faulty memory on to someone else. You obviously did not understand what was taking place; or had your eyes closed whilst wearing sunglasses. There was no massive police escort and HM drove past too quickly too notice any facial expressions.

You were totally wrong about the site of RAF Kidbrooke being located on the site of the current supermarket; and stating that Westhorne Manor was an all boys school pre-1960 as I was a pupil there so I know.

I remember you from the past. Everytime someone corrected you on your mistakes, you became aggressive because you are too arrogant or insecure too admit you are wrong.

RAF KIDBROOKE

I lived in Kidbrooke from 1948 till 1982. RAF Kidbrooke was based on the site of the now Thomas Tallis School. The base was still in existance till the late-1950s or the early 1960s. I used to pass it every day en route to/from school and later to/from work.

The site of the now supermarket was a Royal Mail depot that bracket either side of BR Kidbrooke and the west side of the Kidbrooke Park Road. On the trakeside BR Kidbrooke (West) and the Royal Mail deport (West) was a coal merchants.

The above is rubbish. I grew up in Kidbrooke from 1948 and lived in the area till 1982. The site of the current supermarket was part of the Royal Mail depot which extended to the south side of BR Kidbrooke as far as the River Quaggy which was the northern perimeter of Sutcliffe Park.

RAF Kidbrooke stood on the site of the current Thomas Tallis School. The air base which was either a stores depot or a Combined Armed Services language school and was in existance till the late 1950s/early 1960s and I used to pass it daily en route to school and later en route to work.

Route 132

Route 132 was extended to North Greenwich Station (02 Arena) via Kidbrooke Rochester Way and Greenwich Peninsula (Sainsburys and Filmworks Cinema) on the 24/01/09. Last Bus from Bexleyheath is around 00.20 hours and the last bus from North Greenwich Station (02 Arena) back towards Bexleyheath is just after 01.00 hours. So will benefit many people and will ensure people can get home quickly and safely after a night out.

RAF KIDBROOKE

The site of the current supermarket was part of the Royal Mail depot which straddled both sides of the Kidbrooke Park Road; and BR Kidbrooke before the Ferrier estate was built. During my apprenticeship (electrician) during the early 1960s, I recall going past RAF Kidbrooke which was then located on the site of the now Thomas Tallis school.

I had a school pal who lived in the pre-fabs on the junction of Brook Lane and the Rochester Way during the 1950s. During the early 1960s he and his family relocated to Knockholt Road, Eltham, shortly before the prefabs were demolished.

I agree this is indeed good news for Kidbrooke Rochester Way linking the area to Greenwich Peninsula Shopping Centre and filmworks Cinema as well as North Greenwich Station (Jubilee Line), 02 Arena and Bexleyheath Shopping Centre

Route 132 will stop by Sainsburys on the Greenwich Peninsula which is just a few minutes walk from the other shopping Centres and Asda's on Bugsby Way. I hope route 132 will be more frequent when the route is extended to North Greenwich Station.

RAF Kidbrooke

Where the “Dover Patrol” pub used to be was a small feeder road to the Rochester Way. Alongside this and behind the pub, where the estate now stands, was small greened area. This had the only local WW2 pillbox and a large concrete apron almost alongside.

The pillbox was always almost full of rubble but could make a small boys “castle”. The pillbox was roved some time in the mid 50s and I remember seeing it demolished Local legend said that the concrete apron was supposed to for an AA gun. It’s only in recent years that I’ve wondered whether both these were to protect the Kidbrooke airfield.

On the same side of the Rochester Way as the “Dover Patrol” pub but nearer Broad walk was a largish rough area, known locally for reasons unknown to me as the “cabbage patch”, Post Office buildings behind. I’m now inclined to think that the cabbage patch may have been the last vestige of the original “Kidbrooke Farm”.

RAF Kidbrooke.

I lived in Kidbrooke prefabs from 1945 until 1961 being among those first moved on after the 1958 Great Storm and flood.

I don’t know when the Kidbrooke airbase was first run down but it must have been very shortly after WW2 and it was rapid. When the base closed there was considerable equipment abandoned and hordes of local males descended on the site to “liberate” what ever was left. My late Father’s share was a large wooden bench which served us well until the bitter winter of 1963. To the best of my recollection the airbase was where the supermarket now stands.

Coronation.

Chris, I think your memory is at fault. I too was on that long march to Shooters Hill and the two hour wait just to wave my flag for a few seconds.

The Queens car was an open top vehicle and a sullen bored looking Queen just drove past with massive police escort. Two women behind said “she wasn’t even smiling”.

Remember the whole school going to the Roxy to see “A Queen is crowned” and later “The conquest of Everest”?

Route 132 to North Greenwich Station (02 Arena)

It is good news that route 132 Bexleyheath - Bexley - Eltham Station is to be extended to North Greenwich Station and the 02 Arena via Kidbrooke Rochester Way, Sun In The Sands, A102 to Woolwich Road, Greenwich Peninsula (Sainsburys & Filmworks Cinema), North Greenwich Station (Jubilee Line) and the 02 Arena. The route is due to be extended from January 2009. But we are asking TFL and East Thames Buses who operate route 132 to consider extending the route from 31st December 2008 (New Years Eve) to coincide with New Year Celebrations at the 02 Arena and to take passengers to and from North Greenwich Station (Jubilee Line) for people travelling to and from new year celebrations in Central London. This is great news for the people of Kidbrooke who are normally negelected when it comes to public transport and indeed bus services.

Hadrian Cycling Club

During the 1950s and 1960s the Hadrian CC, a Kidbrooke based cycling club, was in existence. As I recall they used to have meetings in the Progress Hall, Eltham; and weekly Sunday trips through the Kent countryside at break-neck speed where they cyclists could not enjoy the landscape. I would think that most of the former members have passed away!

Does anyone have any details of when the club folded; any records of club champions; and any further details? And are Cycling Clubs as popular today as they used to be 40/50 years ago?

Wed Mar 05

Routes B16 and 291

We are asking Transport For London Buses to introduce the extension of route B16 to North Greenwich Station (02 Arena) in the very near future. So the people of Kidbrooke and Eltham can get to the Jubilee Line at North Greenwich Station as well as the 02 Arena.

We are also hoping route 291 may be extended from Queen Elizabeth Hospital to Eltham Station via Shooters Hill Road, Kidbrooke Park Road, Kidbrooke Rochester Way. Well Hall Circus, Westhorne Avenue, Eltham Hill, Eltham Church and Well Hall Road. To improve bus services between Eltham Hill, Westhorne Avenue and Kidbrooke Rochester Way with Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Woolwich Town Centre for the first time. It will also provide an improved service to Eltham Station and also link Westhorne Avenue with Eltham Town Centre (High Street) at Eltham Church. So would benefit so many local people. We are asking Local MP's and Councillors to support us to get these local bus service improvements introduced.

Hi

We have many pictures of the hadrian cycling club back in the 1930's. This club was founded by my Father in law and his friend around 1930. His name was Willian Selves (bill ) and his friend , we think was called reg. ( don't know the surname ) . We have a lot of old photo's of cycling in england and tour de france circuit in 1933/34/35.

William Selves had a certificate for the London to Bath ride in under 8 hours. His bike was a Bassett, the shop it came from was opposite Woowich Arsenal Station

Sun Sep 23

Route B16

It is very disappointing to hear the proposed extension of route B16 from Kidbrooke Station to North Greenwich Station (02 Arena) has been delayed. We hope TFL still plan to extend route B16 to North Greenwich Station and the 02 Arena in the near future. This will improve public transport in the Kidbrooke area and provide direct bus inks with the Jubilee Line.

Kidbrooke: safety

I used to live in Kidbrooke for approximately thirty years' and the dormitory suburb was safe until the Ferrier estate was built. Later in life I had a job in central London and had to use Kidbrooke Station getting to/from work. En route I was subject to verbal abuse and physical assault by local yobs who had moved onto the Ferrier Estate; and that was two of the reasons why I moved away from Kidbrooke.

A few years' ago I visited a friend who lived near you and was about 100 yards from where I lived. My friend reported that the whole ambience off Kidbrooke had gone into decline during the past three decades and that she was too scared to go out of an evening for the same reasons you mention.
