(Higley) B. Higley's shop, 1959 -1983

Before Dolphin Print

Alan Higley

This was my mum and dad’s shop in 1959. Then it was a green grocer’s but I now run it as Dolphin Print.

  • The LAMBO was my cousin’s who took the photo.
    He worked at the BBC.

  • I remember all of the shops. I have lived here since 1956. The flood came up here in 1958.

  • I remember all of the shops that you mentioned Gary. But your recall of the names is impressive. The only name I remember is Kershaws. I also remember your Dad’s Lambretta.

  • Does anybody know who owned the Lambretta tv 125 that’s parked on the forecourt? Looks very much like my dad’s. Can the photo be enlarged to make out number plate?

  • I remember Higleys as a fruit and veg shop, I lived in Bromfords Drive, so just round the corner, I also remember, Kershaws store, and Swanberrys, sweet shop on the bend just before Higleys, think the owner was Tom Swanberry. Sure they moved to Bexhill. I also remember a lady who worked in there with a broad Irish accent, this would have been in the late 1960s-early 70s. If you followed the Nevendon Road past Cranfield Park Road, there was a general store, Ramsey. They had free range chickens, in the field that bordered Borwick Lane, now an Indian restaurant. Does anybody remember any of the above?
