  • I remember the Fire Station in Basil’s Road when I lived Basil Rd in 1941 till 1954

  • My father, Donald Randall joined the Fire Brigade in the 1950’s and Stevenage was his first station as he lived locally. I remember going there, ring the bell on the engines, playing upstairs. I agree with Mr Charles that the planners destroyed the High Street. I remember Blundells, the department store, Hawkes shoe shop, the lovely delicatessen shop and many more.

  • I can confirm the Picture is 1939. The person on the Right is my father ( William “Bill” Briars ). He joined the fire service in 1939 at the age of 18.

  • This was at the bottom of Basils Road. We used to play in here and in the buildings nearby where the council stored the carnival floats. I remember I lost my shoe in the guttering and had to explain this to my mother! It is a shame Stevenage was destroyed by the developers/council like so many lovely English towns in the sixties.
