Building the Bradley Boat House — and Update!!


thumbnail - 2019-04-16T175533.956.jpeg


I’ve attached pictures of my Father Frank and brother Peter and Father’s friend Eric building the boat house on the river just below where Piety Hill used to be.  How things change.  Today if someone owned a house that size they would pay to have someone do the ‘donkey work’.  Not so much in the fifties.  I believe that the boathouse is still there.

Kind regards,

Dumps Ryall (Bradley)
