red mail Lodge/South
The following is taken from my Grandfather's memoirs about childhood in Northfleet - Alfred James Lodge was born in 1874. 'My earliest recollections are of living in a small four roomed Cottage in a small street known as Shepherd Street, Barrack Fields, Northfleet Kent. Then a small parish partly industrial and partly agricultural close to the Banks of the River Thames with a main London to Dover Road passing through it. Barrack Fields the vicinity in which we lived derived its name from a Block of Dwellings that at one time was Soldiers Barracks and strange to say we lived in these quarters before the small cottage I referred to. Among my earliest recollections are the attending of a small private school at the bottom of our street for a few weeks till after my baby sister was born, I was nearly three when I first went to this school which consisted of a small room seating about 20 children like myself. Soon afterwards I was sent to a National School about ¾ of a mile away, and was there till my sister began to attend. Then we were both transferred from the Rosherville National School to the Northfleet National School belonging to the Northfleet Parish Church. This was nearer to our home and here most of my sisters and brothers received some part of their Education. Our journey to the school was either via the London Road and Village Green by the Parish Church or across a Footpath about 6 feet wide bounded on either side by Chalk Quarries, about 80 feet in depth and no other safety to keep us from falling down these quarries than that of Fear; for we could all crawl under or through the fences that had been erected and to me as I look back it was marvellous that only one boy tumbled down and though injured not severely.Our amenities during our school days were not many. Our playgrounds were not big enough to ‘swing a cat in’, so we made the best use of outside facilities, our swimming Baths were some Running Streams about a Mile away or the Marshes on the Banks of the Thames two miles away. At the age of Eleven I started swimming in the Fresh water streams of Springhead, famous for its Water Cress and by the time I left school I was able to swim very well.'
