Berry Park Estate.

By Thelma Oliver

Sunny days found me and friend Dorothy Hymas (White) walking to Berry Park Estate. My sister Joyce was married to Ronald Burt whose parents owned a bungalow on the estate.  They eventually retired from Lewisham, London where Mr Burt ran a dairy.  He kept a small horse and cart and we enjoyed the ride back home to Laindon as our poor legs were worn out.  My niece Marilyn Burt was the daughter of Ron and Joyce.  Marilyn married Keith Dowling whose father used to sell plants from his smallholding in Basildon Market.  Marilyn and Keith have been mentioned in other articles.
