Hi Jan I used to live in Redcross Way
from 1966-1982, the
sweet factory your talking about was Smith Kendon that's why Kendon came to mind, they used to make hard boiled sweets that were packed in round tins, the main entrance was on the Borough High Street
opposite the Blue Eyed Maid pub and ran right along the width of the rec almost to Redcross Way
, do you remember the bubble gum factory that was on the Borough High Street
the back wall we used as a goal when we played football in little dorrit, a lot of the older boys used to break in and pelt us with golfballs from the roof of the factory,I also remember Nettlefold and Mozer and when I live there directly behind ST Georges was a glass factory they also had a small building in Disney place opposite some sort of factory that made shoes for disabled people, does anyone remember the shops in Redcross Way
and the people who owned them.
