Wayside and Aston way

I’m Chris Matz from 38 Aston Way, Potters Bar, 1970s.

I remember Wayside. Gosling butchers, launderette, I fell through the window lol. Roy Welch grocers. There were flats above the shops.

I’m now in London, aged 62. Wow, the memories. At the end of Aston Way, new garages were built in 70s. My mum would leave me with the builders, and I would eat all the sandwiches. I went on Google Earth recently, and the derelict garages are still there.

  • Hi Chris, I remember you well from Oakmere school days. I have similar memories to you. I was sad when the shops were knocked down and houses built in there place
