I was 11 years old.
Anyone remember Charlie Hoy's tackle shop down one of the side streets, before you got to "Goings?
I remember fishing Priory Park for carp and entering into a conversation with the "Parky" complete with gold rimmed peaked cap who " suggested" that I should get off his island.

When a carp was hooked most of the other carp used to follow right up to the net.
