One Of My Earliest Memories . . . - a Memory of Aldershot.
was walking through Manor Park where it was a common occurrence to see red squirrels right next to the main entrance. We often walked through the park on our way to the swimming pool which was quite a distance after leaving the park.
Ducks swam on the pond in the picture above; they were mainly mallards and frequently we took bread to feed them. I think that Manor Park was my introduction to the British wildlife in which I have had a keen interest as long as I can remember.
Manor Park was the venue where the annual fun fairs put up their stalls, and many a time I attended the circuses that put up in the park too. There wasn't all the fuss then that there is now about animals in circuses and I remember being frightened and thrilled at the same time when watching the big cats and being quite close to the elephants when we had front seats. Those were the days . . . !
