SX4756 : Allotments, Central Park - Plymouth

taken 8 years ago, near to Plymouth, Great Britain

Allotments, Central Park - Plymouth
Allotments, Central Park - Plymouth
The majority of the north-east boundary of the park now holds allotments. I remember there being derelict reservoirs in the area some sixty years ago. These were the two Barn Park Reservoirs built in 1860 to they were used during World War I for emergency supplies and for fire fighting during World War II. During the post war years they were, for the most part, empty – a dangerous ‘playing ground’ for children who were attracted by the frogs and newts that bred in abundance in the shallow puddles in the cracks of the dilapidated slimy basin. Undoubtedly the reason that I remember them!
