Would that be the Lone Ranger,in my time we had the Park Police headed by Sgt Woodcock who we affectionately called Sgt Plankdick.
As kids we tended to be always in the wrong part the park and always at the wrong time,so our physical exercise in the art of running away from the dear Sgt and his playmates was paramount to our safety,those park coppers had eyes in the back of their heads and a nose for trouble,

It is not supposed to be fished, re the notice at the gate, but you do see pillocks maggot drowning in there. Never see any wardens though.

Woodcock also carried a long truncheon instead of the little 'un. I think it must have been a Sgt's staff of authority. he was probably a decent bloke really.

i thought the fig 8 was the little school kids one at the top end of bottom park. Don't tell me I've been wrong. There were still blokes fishing in it though.
