Friday Photo: “Watersplash” – Longmore Brook at Wyndley Pool in Sutton Park.
Today’s Friday photo features, what I affectionately call the “water splash” in Sutton Park. I have many a happy childhood memories splashing bare feet in summer or with wellies in winter. This is a section of longmore brook near Wyndley Pool. Wyndley pool is believed to be one of several pools constructed during the reign of Henry V (1413-22) most likely as fishing pools. In the 17th century Longmore brook was used to power a blade mill at Wyndley, whatr was left of the mill buildings was unfortunately was demolished in 1962.
