This was the sadest part of my life - Cars pond was drained. The brown area was water and was home to every water creature imaginable. Does any body have pictures of the area as a pond.

Yes Kenny..I do! I'll try and dig them out. Would be from when I was a nipper around '64. We had loads of great times down the Carsie! Why doesn't someone fill in the drain pipes with concrete?

Greetings from Vancouver Island.

You MUST know it well if you call it the Carsie!! So you will have been a stickleback catching egg collector (not from Trimdon I hope) Please try to find those photos while I mix the concrete!

Kenny, did you ever get to see any photos of Carsie before it was drained? I'm trying to find one for my web page....It's about Trimdon! Sorry mate, but I think we all adopted Carsie. Loads of wonderful memories down there. I'm sure me dad(he was from Fishburn!) must have taken lots of photos but they'll be back home somewhere...I live on Vancouver Island. Your photos are amazing.
