The 'swamp', back of Shrewley Crescent, mid 60's
« on: January 06, 2016, 07:14:26 PM »
Does anyone remember what us kids used to call the 'swamp' somewhere around the mid 60's? It was basically a pond, I think, with a tree that had almost fallen in that we used to play on.[/size]
It was basically stagnant water!

It was just at the back of Shrewley Crescent and existed before Chelmsley Wood town was built. I'm not sure at which point it got filled in but probably around the time the wood was built.

Anyone remember this or, better still, have any photo's?

Now, where did I put my time machine ....
