  • As a child I used to play all kinds of games in this park, had a wonderfull time. Also growing up at school I had the great honour!!!! of running around the park hounded by the scool teachers, Mr Metcalfe of Queens Park School. If found taking a short cut across, whoa don’t go there. iIalways remember catching frogs and newts from the little stream that ran into the pond. I thought then that it came from the downs? Just a kid
