carni 10,046 Posted November 7, 2018 Report Share Posted November 7, 2018 Those wonderful luxury Apartments overlooking the Trent are indeed going to improve the area and progress does go on, I wish I could have one. I could sit on my balcony every day and look down at the Trent and imagine all of us children in the 50s all playing in that same spot, with our buckets and spades, digging in the specially transported beach sand, paddling and squelching in the muddy leechy water in the cordoned off area, or better still risk leeches and broken glass in the paddling pool.(No Elf and Safety in those days)We are still here though? Here I go again on one of the places that meant so much to me and many others all those years ago. The Pleasure Park. I am sure the people living in the Apartments will enjoy the views they have and I would love to think that some of them may be the children from the 40/50s who enjoyed our very memorable but sometimes a bit dangerous days out at the end of Trent Lane. We could do with some kind of permanent reminder on a wall so that it isn't gone and forgotten forever. 4 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
