Playing on Ham Common – by ML

The common is overgrown with bushes and the trees are much taller.  When the children were little there was a big group of them staying in Beechrow, and they use to play all together on the Common.  The group would come here for a glass of orange juice or a snack and go home at about 6 o’clock in the summer.   A little path was made by the children through the Common, which has now disappeared.  There are no children playing in the woods any more.
