...How can I share this photo with my brother? Did you used to play around the second little dam we called the lido...not showing in this great pic.I remember hot summers we changed into bathing suits near the hawthorn bushes. I can remember it all very vividly! No parents around at all! Never did more than paddle as it was renowned to be very deep in the centre. There were lots of little frogs too!
