I was brought up in Lingfield hill in the 50's. I remember before the current shops were built there were a row of small shops behind. Mr Harrigan and his brother used to have a paper round before the shop was opened and delivered to the estate.I used to be one of the paper boys. In those days there were two evening papers Post & News. Happy days

Grew up here in the 70s/80s. Still have family living there. The fish n chips were fantastic. The off license guy was scary, especially if you had a football with you. Mr Atkins was a lovely guy and I went to school with his youngest daughter Amanda. Mr Harrigan was one of the nicest people I ever met, if you did not have enough money he would let me have the stuff, and let me pay him later!I remember the grocers shop, and just about the butchers. When local shops were still quality and part of the community..killed off by sainsburys being built!!!
