Mill Dam 1959
A watercolour painted by Ian Davies
Paul Lester Wilkinson Maverick – Mill Dam when it had the old building to play in think it just has the children’s play area now. Spent many hours playing in there.
Julie Noble – I remember Mill Dam, the water and collecting small pots from the ground there!
Mags Gaughan – and making clay pots … or so we thought !
Paul Lester Wilkinson Maverick – yeah out of that awful dark grey clay and rolling it up in those huge leaves there!
Claire Louise – and walking under the road from 1st milly to 2nd (grammar field)
Tim Lewis – Did we have fun building dams making ponds what super days they were no silly health and safety just great fun.
Peter Radcliffe – Wow seeing the pictures brings back so many memories. It may be a play area now, but when I was a child it was an adventure playground. A chance to get muddy and wet.
Janet Anne Taylor – and paddling in the stream.
Tim Lewis – Did we have fun building dams, making ponds what super days they were no silly health and safety just great fun
Keith King – Oh happy days! Should have been preserved
Mags Gaughan – We used to be down there all day. It was a brilliant place to play and now I live here.
Julie Larder- Dyson – OMG it was brilliant. I spent hours there until they built the houses.
Anne Townsend – I used to play there too. I spent many an hour paddling and playing hide and seek. Good old days heh!
John Rojahn – I remember playing here after school.
Mick Mellors – John and I spent many a happy hour there.
Kat Perry – hid from many a crooss country run in Mill Dam.
Phillip Bates – Spud Taylor and I spent many a happy day playing there. We called it Piggy Field. It was better than the playground today, I bet.
Charlie Dame – Fantastic place I used to play there every day and even drank the water from the waterfall and it never killed us!
