Here is another of Bulwell Common for you Ben, this one is a lot earlier than the previous one so you wont remember it like this, At the bottom left is the bridge linking Hucknall road and St Albans Road then the common and the vast expanses of Bulwell and Bulwell Hall Estate in the back, also the fields where Bestwood Estate was built, what stands out is the railway lines that shaped the area. The common does not look that big , but as young kids it took a while to walk from one end to the other, maybe we were enjoying ourselves too much.

But look at the antics you've packed in to such a small area!
