Just returned from a wonderful afternoon on the Victoria Embankment with my wife and grandchildren.

I had a couple of hours fishing and watched the kids play scooting safely up and down the embankment and flying a kite.

My wife enjoyed the warm autumn sunshine and a cup of tea.

A great afternoon costing only a couple of ice creams.

What forsight out Victorian forefathers must have had when they constructed the Embankment for the enjoyment of the people of Nottingham and surrounding areas (I say that because I do not live in the City)

Similarly the Forest Recreation ground and the Arboretum, two oases !tanning! :angry: of peace in the City, again planned and built by the Victorians.

Anyone think of anymore?

Will we leave a legacy to our great great grandchildren to enjoy for free?

I don'T think so.

It looks a bit dilapidated was it rebuilt later or are your memories from this era?
