Is this Hervey Road ? ..

Oh yes, this certainly is Hervey Road as I was from there and grew up there. I sure miss it, and don't think by knocking it down made any improvement in Whitehawk either.

This photo brings back memories i grew up in Hervey Road at No.76 there was a turning circle at the top for cars.
I remember as a kid digging the cars out after a heavy snow fall in the 70s great times.

Yes this is the top end of Hervey Road towards the turning circle. I can remember walking to the Whitehawk Schools not a care in the world and playing on the hills after. Does anyone remember making and racing go karts down the pathways at the top of the road. HAPPY DAYS!

I was born in HERVEY ROAD on 1st May 1954. I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters. Their names are FRANK, KEN, CAROLE, MAUREEN, BRIAN, ROBIN and me ANTHONY. My parents were ERNEST and HILDA. Our house was on the right, 5th from the top near the turning circle. If you didn't see the family name it is MUZZALL. If there is anyone out there that reads this and recognises the name please get in touch. It would be fantastic to hear from you.

Hi Paul. Oh yes, I certainly remember go-karting and roller skating down the zig-zag path that linked Manor Farm to Whitehawk Road. I lived in Hervey Road from 1941 to 1958. Our family lived at 104 until 1958, before moving to Moulescombe. Our neighbours were the Gunns, the Walters, the Davies, the Chapmans and across the street were the Peacheys, the Burbridges, the Mays, the Fanes, the Maidments. 104 was in the turning circle.

My Nan and Grandad lived at 9 Harvey road for many years till they passed away in the Sixties. Long ago memories of catching the 44 bus from The Level to go and see them for Sunday dinner. My Grandad was a nightwatchman on the various roadworks in Brighton,everyone knew "old Bill" Innes in the fifties. The louts put his eye out with a stone but he kept on working. Different world now isnt it.

I would agree with Tony, the new estate is no improvement at all. I liked how it was laid out. I cannot remember my house number, but we were next door to the Swifts, near the top on the right. I vuaguely remember things such as  games late in the summer, June bug swatting, taking my new Grifter to the top of the path at the cul de sac to jum the ramp below and the 25th Jubilee street party.

I had a friend Alan Inkpen who lived at the top of Hervey Rd. I used to go to his house At school dinner times in the early 60's. His mum used to give me a cup of tea and one of her old holborn roll ups! Also another mate from this road was Jim Leishman.

I remember going up to the car turning point on roller skates then coming back holding onto the back of a motor bike, a silly but at the time funny thing to do . Kids huh!!!

Spent the first four years of my life at 82 Hervey Road as we lived with my Nan and Granddad, Arthur and Annie shipton. Had many happy days and hours spent going to see them. we played many ball games at the top of the road and i think half the children in Hervey Road were out playing, good old days, wish we could turn back time they were so happy and every one looked out for each other.
