SUMMER HOLIDAYS DURING THE 1950s

ADDED 6 FEBRUARY 2006

Summer outing to Smeaton Craggs Summer outing to Smeaton Craggs

Summer 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 countryside.

One 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.

Usually 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.
