Living in Hornby Road
My parents moved to Bevendean in the mid 50’s with my sister and brother in tow. I think they came to be near my Aunt and Uncle, who had completed one of the City’s first self builds in Plymouth Avenue. Another brother turned up in 1967 and I hastily followed in 1968.
We lived in Hornby Road and I have extremely fond memories of playing in the surrounding fields and streets, making camps and playing tracking with our gangs of friends. My Dad sold the house in 1980 and I did not return to Bevendean until I became involved in my own self-build in 1997.
