This photo of the playpark on the Middlefield Lane estate was taken in April 2008. It had been there in one form or another since the estate was completed. I went back to this spot in May 2011.
For some reason the park equipment had been removed. I spent many happy years playing on that park a very different world ago. Do children not live round here anymore, I wonder? Are they not allowed to have somewhere to play on this already deprived estate?
