My grandad used to take me for a walk down Delta Rd over the fields. On the left hand side of the Field there was a huge pond which used to ice over in the winter and people used to skate on it. I was told that a few people had been drowned in this pond because of the ice giving way! does anyone know if this area was called Paddy's Ackle? We then continued onto the little stone bridge over the Stinky Brook and over the field to the Ship Inn , along the side of the stream to Carr Mill. There was a Big stone in this stream. Grandad used to tell me that it was the fairy stone and every night the fairies would turn it over! On other occasions I would be taken on the same route by my father but after we had crossed over the stone bridge we would turn left along the side of the brook (I was allway's scared in case a rat came out of the brook) under a little stone bridge and up some steps onto Boardmans lane and then cross over another small field onto Park Rd where I went to Brookfield Mission Sunday School ( fondly known as the Tin Hut) because of it's construction. We used to play for hours in the fields at the bottom of Delta Rd, making daisy chains and picking buttercups. Happy Days!
