The left hand side of Bray's Lane/Stoke Park side also had sandstone ashlar which may have come from the city wall or gates.

I don't know a year, but I recall paddling in it in the early 1970s - and by the 80s I'm pretty sure it was just left as it was, but empty. It would be interesting to learn when it was grassed over.

Thanks Rob. I was asking for my daughter in law, she says she used it in the 80s.

Greg, Yes, they are great photos but that granite trough - there was one similar quite close to you at one time at Main Farm, just above the 'Slough' - it was still there in 1950s, all grown over with nettles, brambles and such, near the old dutch barn. It had been replaced by a tin one similar to the old tin baths, with a small pipe that fed it from as far away as the canal - all would have disappeared with the highway I presume.

I recall using it when I was around 10 or 11 years old. That would have been in 1982-3.

It was full of water in1970 because I ended up swimming in it after my stag party.
