1962 - 5 Warden Mill Close, Wateringbury

I have been looking for these photos for years and am pleased to have found them on a website where they can be purchased as a download or print. Mr Hobbs the website owner has kindly given permission to show them here.

I remember coming home from primary school on Red Hill for lunch one day in 1962 at the age of 9 years to find a Whitbreads tanker full of beer had been left just outside the brewery gates on what is now Leney Road. The break couldn't have been properly engaged and the whole tanker rolled down the hill across Bow Road and into Warden Mill Close coming to rest in the garden and against the wall of No 5 Warden Mill Close. At the time and until today I always thought it went through the wall of the house but these photos show that was narrowly avoided.
This Google Street view shows where the tanker was originally parked and you can see the house in the distance

Behind the house you can also see the Hop Gardens and the Hopping Machine that would have been a very new and modern piece of farm machinery in 1962.
