The Poolway, Kent's Moat.

 by Voltman , Mon May 26, 2014 11:38 pm

I found a photo of the Poolway recently, unfortunately, during last weeks hard drive clean up I seem to have lost the photo.

I don't think I ever went there until the late sixties and I don't remember it looking like it does in this photo.

The first thing I noticed is that there seems to be a road from the Meadway that goes up the middle of the shopping centre. This would explain the wide pavement between the shops and the bulbous shape at the end, presumably where there was a roundabout for the cars to turn or perhaps it turned right at the top and out onto Sheldon Heath Road.
I also notice a lack of flats above the shops, one of which is Axford's Newsagents but not the one that took over the Gas Board showrooms.

If anyone has any memories, or better still any photo's, of The Poolway please post them here.
