Historic Maps of Kempston and the local area.

Such a shame. Many wonderful hours spent fishing around the Mill and surrounding waterways - Deadman's Pool, the backwater, shingle island, Manor Island and 'The Bend'. All swept away one year and turned into a canal! Shame really...

I remember the bend in the River well, as I used to fish in that area in winter for pike, and in the summer lower down fish for eels... such a long time ago.
