Frol's Great Adventure

Bedford Park Resident Francis Oliver Cherry, known as 'Frol', was one of the early participants in our House History project.  He contacted the Association having read the article on Bricks & Brickmaking in Bedford Park on our site here. Frol was intrigued because he owns a house in Stamford Brook built originally by Thomas Hussey who ran the brickfields that supplied many of the bricks used in Bedford Park and Stamford Brook.

As part of the project Frol has pieced together the story of who lived in his home and has built a bond with some of the lives he has discovered. Here he talks to Nick Raickes of the Chiswick Calendar about what he has found out so far, and meets Mel Backe-Hansen, the historian on our project.
