The other day I just did a little search for some old photos of Theale where I spend many days out camping and fishing from around 1963 to 1970 when I was a teenager. It was very different then of course - when the M4 stopped at Maindenhead. It was the real countryside and a very wonderful place to us bunch of North London Kids.
