Extract from the recollections of Dorothy Woodword: I spent my early childhood at 48 Sparkenhoe Street, long since gone and replaced by the house shown in this photo. I still clearly recall practically every detail of the light brick terraced house, with its neat front garden enclosed with iron railings and a strong iron gate.
No electricity, gas on the ground floor, candles for upstairs lighting. At the top of the hill were several shops and also a row of shops at the lower end of the street, which had a very small living area behind the shop, a lean to kitchen and a communal yard. Dorothy Woodford 1997.
