Terry Cremin was born on Herbet Road (on the west side of the bridge to Bowes Park station) and lived there all his life until last year. Terry is much like a local historian as he remembers a lot about the area, including very interesting details and names.
He is passionate about trains, and beautifully describes the station and its old bridge. He can describe the old station entrance at the end of Myddleton road and the shops that surrounded it. He also speaks well about how the station porters used to come and play cricket with him as a child when there was no trains due.
Terry remembers a grocers, called William’s Brothers that had its own money system and a very unusual way of putting transactions through the tills.
