    Came across this today.
    Apparently Lammas Green was built in 1955/7.
    Does anyone know what was on the site previously

    Although born in Dulwich in 1946, I lived most my life from 5 years old in East London. Firstly Leyton and then Walthamstow. I was a telegram boy on a bicycle at Poplar and then on a motorbike at Forest Gate. I eventually became a firefighter based at Plaistow and knew East London like the back of my hand.

    I moved to Peckham when I was five years old and am now 37. I have some very good memories of my childhood. The Odeon cinema stands out in my memory very much from about the age of seven years old when my eldest brother Steven used to take me and my sister Theresa to watch the Saturday morning movies. After they had finished they used to have games and dances for the children on the stage. It used to be great fun. Jones and Higgins stands out too. I remember a doorman all suited, with a sort of top hat, who used to open the doors for the customers

    I found this website by chance and am delighted to read about Hadleigh. My great- grandparents retired to Hadleigh just before WW1. My grandfather used to talk about a chapel in Hadleigh owned by the 'Peculiars'.....a very strict form of Methodism which was apparently prevalent in Essex. I was wondering if anyone knows anything further about the Hadleigh Chapel. Many thanks.
