Demolition of house next to the garage, Runwell Road

By Jo Cullen

This house was next to the garage in Runwell Road and was demolished to make way for the roundabout and enlargement of the Garage. I was told the manager of Darby's lived there

I seem to remember that this house lost its large chimney during the 1987 hurricane.

Worked in this garage (Runwell Garage), the gunners were Roy and Maurice. Jim Hair was workshop manager, Gordon Penson stores manager. Other guys were Tony, Michael (both had something to do with Carters funerals).

Think it was Ray, one of a twin, the other worked, I think, at Southend Road garage with Laurie Golding.

The garage was a Morris agent, the Austin agent being Walkers of Basildon.
