Drive around Crowthorne & Sandhurst in 1987

Here’s something a little different: a video on YouTube showing a drive around the village way back in 1987! It’s surprising how similar a lot of the place looks – in many places it could almost be from the present day if there weren’t all the old Escorts and Astras and things about.

#13 – Crowthorne, Broadmoor Avenue

Crowthorne, Lower Broadmoor

Crowthorne, Lower Broadmoor: Frith no. 78039

Franked Crowthorne, Berks, unreadable date.┬áThe Frith website lists the photo as “Lower Broadmoor 1925, Crowthorne

This road is now known as Chaplain’s Hill. The houses are still there, and there are some garages as well now. The trees in the centre aren’t there any more, having at some point been removed to provide a small parking area.
