Bogged down in Lloyd Park

Beyond the swings and even further than the far 9th hole on the disc golf course, lies a field in Lloyd Park that is  known only to dog walkers and small group of local residents. Befitting its secret  location it can only be accessed through a hole in the hedge, a legitimate hole I might add and not one created by errant youths.

Ignore the no trespass signs this refers to the old school playing fields of the former John Ruskin school long since closed and re-engineered  as a sixth form college  a mile up the road.

With the heavy rains of last two months still in the memory large puddles are in evidence in the other higher parts of the park. A natural water jump for the parkrun competitors an event that takes place every saturday morning,  although the proliferation of puddles in close proximity  has more in common with a game of hopscotch than a fun run. A spokesperson for parkrun was unavailable for comment.

A large puddle?- No a natural pond

After a longish walk and remarkably clean trousers  the new Lloyd park cafe was a welcome retreat with cofees all round.
