SUMMER HOLIDAYS DURING THE 1950s
ADDED 6 FEBRUARY 2006
holidays during the 1950's seemed to be endless. It consisted of
trainspotting, bird nesting and numerous other activities where the local
lads visited the Knottingley quarries, surrounding villages, woodlands and
such day took a gang from Knottingley on a bike ride to Smeaton Craggs and
Brock o' Dale Woods. The bikes can be seen dumped in the hedgerow.
armed with bottles of pop (or water depending on finances) and a few
sandwiches, the gangs would set off somewhere for the day. The photographs
show a gang on one of these outings.
