Nice one ,that type of activity was the norm way back before all fancy hand held gadgets.

Remember doing that with my cousin Fred Matthews years. ago. A jam jar with an string handle was part of our kit.
How dangerous was that! 😀🙀

Takes me back 50 years, lol.

That's what we did as children, exploring and learning, we didn't want to go home in the evenings.
Jam butties and water/pop was the food of the day, great.

Memories to cherish for those little 'uns...as everyone else says,much better than gazing at a gadget iPhones etc,there are no memories in those...and nothing like a day out with your Mam/Mum..lovely.
Thank you Ron

Lovely pic. Note the iron bar behind the bike. There to help towropes ride up the parapet.

Good point Maureen, I wonder how many people today call their mother
Mam or is it Mum.
Comment by Maureen on 11th September 2017 at 19:07
Garry,it'll always be Mam to me.
Comment by Garry on 11th September 2017 at 20:58
Yes Mam sounds good. I think the young generation say Mum don't they.
I've always said Mam, infact, it says Mam on her headstone at Westwood cemetery.
Comment by Veronica on 11th September 2017 at 21:01
I always called my mam 'mi mam' -my friend called hers 'mum'. - I thought that was 'posh'!
Yet my children have always called me 'mum'! Whatever, she's the best friend you could ever have had - and that's a fact!
Comment by Maureen on 11th September 2017 at 21:06

Comment by irene on 11th September 2017 at 21:14

I hate the word MAM for mother. Never used it.
Comment by Maureen on 11th September 2017 at 21:39
My hubby always calls he's Mother and it always sounds cold ..but everybody to their own..I love hearing others use the word Mam.
Comment by Veronica on 11th September 2017 at 22:21
Even The Queen is addressed as Ma'am pronounced Mam .I suppose it's a derivative of 'Madam' ...
Comment by Ellen on 11th September 2017 at 22:55
I always called mine 'mum', in letters too, it was always Mum and Dad. I now find myself speaking of them as my mother and father, or simply as 'my parents'. I wonder if that is North Americanism creeping in??...Horrors!

It all depends how we've been brought up, I called my grandparents
grandad and grandma, some say Nan.
