Peter Metcalf about letting go of London and adapting to Stevenage
"People couldn’t understand how they could live not being in London but they managed. We all managed."
But one interesting thing about moving up here is, I remember when I’d get up the girls who worked with me, a girl particularly who worked with me in Stevenage they were Londoners and they would go back to London every weekend to see their parents or something, and they did that for about, perhaps as much as the year and then it started to fade away as they became part of the community and they just had normal relations with their parents in London, you know. People couldn’t understand how they could live not being in London but they, they managed, we all managed.
