Another shot of Kersal Dale (early to mid 1970s). This time we can see the old bugalow that was occupied by the chief greenkeeper of Kersal Dale.



The same spot in 1927. You can see people playing golf in the bottom right and the racecouse over the river.

One of the hills where we used to make tree swings. The top picture was taken in 1969 and the picture below shows the remains of the swings in 2008.

And here is a picture of Liam Mallon on a tarzan swing on that very spot in 1982
