Torksey in the 70s

Recommended Posts

I've put it on here before but my Grandad had Rydal Mount from 64 to the mid 90's, Stan Beal. I used to come for weeks in the school holidays but can't remember many kids names its so long ago.

We had a caravan on the Elms site middle of the 70s to early 80s. We, Fothergills, bought ours after our friends, Whelans and Cantors bought theirs. Used to go there from Sheffield, where we lived then, every Friday after work and stayed until Sunday.Then through the summer we spent more time there. We would go around to the Little London site each time we were there had some good nights. The owner of the London site tried to persuade us to move our caravans on to his site. The elms owner and the Little London owner didn't like each other. Had some great times there caught some decent fish.

 

blackhill are you sea fishing at blackpool

Hiya loneranger64. How is my old mate going on. No I don't do any sea fishing in Blackpool. Was on Norfolk Broads a few weeks ago. Plenty of fishing there.

What you been getting up to since we last chatted?
