O0 O0 Scipio did you ever get to walk up Devon Street passed the Gas works the smell was amazing used to stop and smell all the time on my way home from school


Cant say I did , but I remember another thing about Cannon Hill park , crayfish in the river . Picked up an old wellington out of the river
I thought someone was giving me a round of applause but it was the crayfish getting a bit anxious being out of water, wasn't there some sort of museum there back in the late 50's early 60's ?

The Natural History Museum had had annex at the rear entrance to the park by Pebble Mill by the paddling pool, it has now been utilised as an entrance to the Nature Centre. There is a photo of it earlier on this thread.
