South Green Sunday School 1949/50

by David Stokes

I have recently come across these photos of South Green Chapel Sunday School taken in 1949/50; they were obviously taken on the same day but one is dated about 1949 and the other 1950. The chapel was, I believe, on the corner of Outwood Common Lane.

My parents moved into the first prefab in South Green – No. 15 Bullsteds Walk (editor: Does anyone remember where that was?). I was born in 1946, but we moved away in 1950.

The note on the back of the photo of the children coming out is ‘Neil Cridland’s back view’.

  • I attended Sunday School at South Green Chapel in the mid 1950’s. It was run by Mr Hewitt who was also my R.E. teacher at Billericay School where I managed to scrape through my GCE ‘O’ level R.E. exam in 1964. I can remember a new extension built on the right hand side of the chapel, probably in the late 1950’s. This housed a couple of small classrooms. I’m not sure of the date when it was all demolished to make way for the large OAP complex on the corner of Southend Road.

  • Bullstead Walk was the row of prefabs that faced the Chapel and Outwood Common Road.
