Imagine the excitement when the circus came to town in about 1969. I have attached two photos I took of an elephant parading up Tattenhoe Lane.

I’ve many happy memories of living in Bletchley. I went to Bletchley Grammar School and remember being taught by: Miss Marrison; Mrs Hawes; Mr Shiers; Mr Shakeshaft; Mr Thornhill: Mr Pilcher; and Mr Halewood, all fine teachers.

  • my nan and grandads house also backed on to the market fields- (where sainsbury now stands)as a sixties pre-teenager, the area was an adventure playground and we had freedom to explore- from the fields, to the river and i well remember times in the market fields,spending all day at the market, swinging on the gates, walking the walkway above the livestock- off to ramsbothams up brooklands road, then down to the brook in its natural state before it was concreted-before baccara grove was developed we played on the cleared land, in summer staying out as late as we could-i remember it as if it was yesterday-where are you now caz
