The nursery, which was called Barn Meadow Nursery, belonged to my grandfather and then my father Ken HUTCHINSON. We grew mainly tomatoes and cucumbers and had a small shop at the top of the nursery. I grew up there and it was a great place to live. The nursery lay between Station Rd, Hothfield Rd, Ivy Street and the High Street. The kids that lived on those roads had gardens that backed onto the nursery and they used to climb over their walls and fences to play. My Dad allowed us to use a large overgrown area to build camps and we had a wonderful time. We called it the Big Hills. Happy memories!
