Two of us turned up for the outing on a rainy sunday.
It was a fascinating first visit for me.
Along each grassy path there was a narrow, meandering animal track of shorter grass. Presumabely made by the resident foxes.
At one point we could look over in to the grounds of Belle Vue, the previous site of the Central Library, and the meeting place for the HSS for many years. Both of us remember the room full of stuffed birds the Society had there, though I was only a lad and not a member yet.
