Chesterfield – Maynard Road (St Augustine’s/Boythorpe)

 

Our anonymous contributor was born in 1929 in his grandparents’ house on Chatsworth Road.

In 1932 his parents moved into a brand new council house on Maynard Road, which is between Boythorpe Road and Park Road.  The move made a huge difference to the family.  During the war, the family built an Anderson shelter in their garden.  After the contributor and his siblings grew up and left home, his elderly parents moved into a council-owned bungalow.
