News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Hi I lived in Strood at the back of the High Street from 1945 to 1958, and the shop was known localy as Slasher Bates, because he always managed to nick you.

One of my ancestors (Fred Bates) ran a barbershop or mens hairdresser in Strood high street for several years, up to about 1955. I would love to know more about it, so if anyone has any memories or photos that might be relevant please share them here.
Thanks
Jon
