This week its happy memories, these 2 pictures cover one of those.
wicksteed park. i believe its really called the waterchute but to me it will always be the boat on a rope. Wicksteed park (near kettering) is now 90 years old and the boat on a rope ride is almost as old (it opened in 1926).
Wicksteed is a place we used to go when i was a child. Dad would buy us tickets and me and my brother would have a fantastic time, carefully using up our share of the tickets. I loved this ride and still do. Even better is that now i can share it with my kids -
I know that now 3 generations of our family have ridden the boat on a rope, my mum used to get to go on it when she was little and there is a good chance my grandpa rode it with her making it 4 generations.
