Farington park

The lodge you fished in Frank must have been still in use by the mill, the first lodge at the top end of the park was full of rubbish and doubt there would have been any fish in it?

We used to build a raft of railway sleepers on the lodge every summer - me, George Parker, Dave Blundell, Frank Davis, Alan Ashworth and others. Great fun!
In the hard frosty winter of 1962-3 the lodges froze about 6" thick.....we had bikes on there, a motor bike on one occasion and great games of ice hockey, Farington v Leyland. It seemed to go on for weeks but couldn't have been more than a couple I suppose.
