Hi Bob

On the Google map Baths are mentioned! This would on the left near the island, and refers to an open air swimming pool. It was fenced of and eventually filled in, but this could have been in the 60's!

Hi Pedro

I'd not been this way before. The cycle route from Sutton Park runs down through Stockland Gree & Witton onto the canal just West of Spaghetti. It's a lovely route - apart from a set of inexplicable steps half way through - and this lake was a revelation to me. It's a lovely spot.

Hi Bob

Spent many hours round this park as a kid, and returned from work at the far end of your photo.

In passing from the far end in the dark on the old bike I always wanted to take a photo but never got round to it. There are great reflections of the house lights across the pool.

So if you ever pass that way take one for me!

All the Best Peter
