Old Photos of Wigmore, Gillingham, Kent

This is a collection of old photos of the area around Wigmore Gillingham Kent originally from my grandmother's archives and subsequently added by contributions from readers in the Wigmore area. She lived in Woodside for 60 years having built her own property in 1939. In addition a few more recent scenes have been taken around the area.

My goodness,just came across this site. So many memories. Our family first lived in Harty Avenue then later the top end of Wigmore road. No made up road, no running water,we collected drinking water from a stand pipe up the road. Other water came from waterbutts. Right out in the sticks,but oh such happy memories. All our friends gardens ran into the woods where we would spend our time playing.
I now live in the west country,and return occasionally to visit relatives,but it's no longer the place of my childhood/teenage years. I will have to see what old photos I have of Wigmore Road as it was.

The Bredhurst rd picture looks like it has been taken near the top end of bredhurst rd, must be near the entrance to harty avenue i guess
