Oh boy, do I wish I was 11 again. Instantly reminded me of the fun had in Southport outdoor baths in the 50s/60s on their slide. Mum and da had trouble getting us home. Weather always seemed hot as well.

But wasn't the water freezing cold, Derek. At least that's how I remember it. Warm sunny days though.
Hope you are all well.
Good photo Thomas. !!
