Walney Airport


Here's a view of what I jokingly refer to when I drop off there as Walney International Airport.

Bob,

In 1955, or was it 56, the queen was flying into Barrow and the corporation had to clean the runways. I was a "sweepers mate" that normally brushed the dirt from the pavements into the gutters. Trouble is there are no pavements on the runways so we had to spend the day sunbathing in the long grass.

What a hardship for a sixteen year old doing a vacation job! You picture takes me back.
