'those Happy Byeways Where We Went And Never Come Again'. - a Memory of Wordsley.

I used to live just down the way from this stile and went walks through Cally Wood firstly with my friend Pauline Ellett and later with my husband and grandchildren. It's a lovely wood and used to border the sandpit which is gone now. The sandpit was at the bottom of my friend's garden in Mount Pleasant and I used to love going over there. It was like the Grand Canyon to us. This photograph puts the past into soft focus. 'Those happy byeways where we went and never come again' to paraphrase A.E.Houseman.

Just wondered if Connie Phillips was Connie Smith who attended Audnam school as there was also a Pauline Ellett in our class many moons ago. When we were kids we were chased out of Cally wood by the then gamekeeper i think was called Butters.
( any recollections ?.)
