I DECIDED TO DEDICATE A WEB PAGE ON THIS FASCINATING STREET ‘LORENCO ROAD’ AFTER THE STORIES MY MOTHER HAD TOLD ME AS A YOUNG BOY. I FEEL LUCKY TO HAVE LIVED THERE EVEN THOUGH I LEFT THERE WHEN I WAS SIX. THE STREET WAS DEMOLISHED AND RENAMED, WIPED OFF THE MAP, BUT NOT FROM PEOPLE’S MEMORIES. HERE ARE THE STORIES AND PICTURES OF THE PEOPLE THAT LIVED THERE OR WHO WERE JUST PASSING THROUGH OR HAD HEARD OF THE TOUGH REPUTATION THIS STREET HAD. FOR THE PEOPLE THAT LIVED IN LORENCO ROAD AND THE NEIGHBORING STREETS THERE WAS A GREAT SENSE OF COMMUNITY AND TOGETHERNESS. CAN I THANK ALL THE PEOPLE WHO TELL THEIR STORIES AND SHARE THEIR PICTURES .

     THIS IS A TRIBUTE TO MY MOTHER HAZEL MAY SAUNDERS

Hello my name is bill welsh. we used to live in

lorenco road in 1958 approx in a scrap yard. As

well as doing scrap my dad used to sell tarlogs

that he got from under the cobble roads for

people to burn on there fires! I remember May

who used to live at no.2 and there was also a

large family who on the opposite side to where

we lived. I was a naughty 6/7 year old as i

recall. wow what a time.

My grandad Fred Wheeler told me about Little

Russia & how the police walked in two''s. At 7

years old he was a bookies runner. I did see an

old photo of my great nan sitting with some

gypsy ladies by a caravan. My grandad Fred

married my nan Nellie. They eventually moved to

Waltham Cross but they moved here (Suffolk)

when he retired. I was born at home in

Lansdowne Road but we all moved to Waltham

Cross in the late 60s.
