The Beeches, Standish
Photo: David Long (IPhone)
Behind The Beeches and the trees was once the Top Lodge from which I pulled a 6 pound Tench. The British record at the time was 9 pound. It is the closest I've ever come to glory.
That one must have been taken a week or so ago David, for, as you will know, a great deal of the steelwork is now in place.
Ah but you’ve soared the heights as a poet, Poet!
Nadolig Llawen to you all! x
Where are they expecting folks to park their vehicles, residents along Green Lane and the streets off aren't going to be happy with even more cars being parked up, it's bad enough around there with folks parked up to go down Squire's Hey to the health centre.
An old photo, the steelwork is now in place.
Drove past yesterday.
Diolch yn fawr iawn Pat. Nadolig Llawen.
Poet. A six-pounder! That's a really good catch. I've been having a look at 'Tench records over the years', and discovered that the nine-pounder was landed in 1963; a record that stood for twelve years. Aye, you were in good companye.
