The large house in the background to this photo was originally the village rectory and was bought by Pentland Hick, the owner and founder of the zoo, and it became his family home for several years, later to becomes offices for the zoo. The proceeds from the sale went towards building a new rectory near the war memorial.

I worked as a zoo keeper at flamingo Land in the 60's and 70's and this photo brings back memories of some of the misguided practices of the era. Mixing bears from different back grounds was not a good idea, although all the bears where introduced as youngsters, as they matured conflicts occurred. Eventually the polar bears moved on to there own enclosure.
