Woodland Park
« on: Tuesday 16 December 14 16:28 GMT (UK) »
 I have been reading the history of Woodland Park and would like to add my story. I was born on 11 3 41 at 46 Woodland Road, two doors away from Gaerwood House. When it was bombed I was  in my pram outside the house and my Mother told me that glass had fallen on the pram.  When my Brother and I used  to play we would climb over the wall into the ruins with other children and play for hours. When it was made into a park no-one used to go there. :)

Hello and a very warm welcome to rootschat.
We are a friendly lot and many of us won't be around during the festive season ..... however some of us 'shut ins' (disabled types) are .......  so ask whatever you like.
This might be a good starting point;
