Tales From The Forumside
Memoirs of a childhood in The Forumside, Edgware, North West London. More
The Forumside was an industrial area bordered by about twenty shops and thirty flats, close to Edgware’s Station Road and The High Street. It lay at the beginning of the Edgware Road, which runs for 16 kilometres/ten miles, to Marble Arch in central London.
When I was a child, it was surrounded by three pubs, an ancient church with a bell-ringing tower, a school and a railway goods yard. Nestled inside this L-shaped block was a bread factory, several engineering factories and workshops, a telephone exchange and two very old workmen’s cottages which must have been leftover from Edgware’s agricultural past.
