The Spinney

A few days ago my very much younger than me sister sent me some photos of the Spinney with her children playing there. Sister still lives in the village in which I grew up and I rather thought her children might like to see their uncle in the same area more than 60 years ago. These are photos by my dad and perhaps not his best.

The spinney is a long thin wood between streams. Look carefully and you can just make out three children perched on the bank on the right.

They are my sister, me and my brother. They were both older than me so not the same sister with young children now,

Here’s a general view of the spinney back in 1952.

It still looks just the same today! This is one of young sister’s photos.
