We were lucky we had places to play in. There was a big (very big) field just five minutes walk from our house. Seven miles out of town, in the Fifties and Sixties we almost lived in the country. My Mom hat walk three quarters of a mile to the post office in those days.
This big field had two massive bomb holes which turned into great ponds. There was a rope tied to a tree on which you could swing out on over the pond. It's a wonder no one ever drowned. You would at least have been extremely sick if you swallowed any of the water. there were loads of Frogs, Newts and that kind of thing. My God in that field were anything we wanted to be. Robin Hood. Commando's, etc etc etc. It was better than any adventure park.
Of course that all ended and the whole thing was totally ruined when the Council in their wisdom turned it into Garretts Green Industrial estate. SB
