The Mill

A Memory of Bordon

My mum used to take us all (seven of us) to the mill to paddle. It was always freezing, some would even be brave enough to swim.  There was always a strong smell of pond weed, but we had great fun. When it was warm enough we used to pack a picnic and walk to Frensham pond which was a great treat.  That was about 40 years ago now but I remember it like it was yesterday.
