Dates in the brickwork
West End Road '88'
'I created my own 'date mark' that is little known. In my work I had
some pumping stations rebuilt, one is on West End Road near the Volvo
garage, and another is tucked away in Bourne Park. The point is, I had
the years of construction picked out in the brickwork on the side
walls. West End Road has '88' and the other has '89' on it. Bet you
didn't know that! Simon Bole' (21.1.2016) Many thanks to Simon for drawing our

through the park gates. After a few yards, turn right and head along
the path past the toilet block and towards the depot in front of you.
Towards the right you will see the roof above the timber fence that
I'm pleased it is worthy enough to make your website! Simon Bole'
