Top field

Top field Victoria Park, St.Helens.

Memories of many happy years exploring the park. Our house was very near the park and in the Summer we sometimes made our way with the plates, cutlery and pan and had a picnic meal on the top field just near the top hedge. Hotpot was one meal remembered.

Fellow Cowley pupil Robert Williams takes a photo as I record him and Victoria Park during a 6th form Photo Society outing in 1979.
Pilkingtons Glass was a major manufacturer based in the town and employed a whole lot of townsfolk in the factories dotted around.

The old cafe

The central doors lead to pop, crisps and ice cream, the doors to the left of the picture lead to bowls and putting hire (perhaps tennis rackets and balls also?). Round the back were the public toilets.
