SO MUCH of Basingstoke has changed dramatically over the past 20 years.

Redevelopment and demolition have transformed many areas.

I grew up in Popley and moved away over ten years ago. When I pop back now, I hardly recognise my old estate.

The John Hunt Of Everest school, built in 1970 with its vast grounds is now filled up with houses.

The ugly maisonettes of Popley 2 are now a distant memory with new roads created and a shopping area.

Here is how Popley used to look.

If you have any photos of Popley that you'd like to share on this page, please contact me at the Flashback Thursday address above.
