Terry Potter remembers Mr Middleton

Terry Potter played in the park as a youngster when Mr Middleton was Park Keeper, he knew of Mr Middleton because his daughter,  Ann, was in his class at school. Terry says " in those days we would regularly get chased for riding our bikes or 'Bird Nesting' in the park and I can also recall trains running from Meltham through the bottom of the park.  Another memory was a friend breaking his arm whilst climbing trees at the Butternab Road end.   As a young kid we were told that  there was a tunnel which led from the park across the valley and we spent hours looking for it but to no avail.  Was there really a tunnel?"
