Driv­ing back to park­way’s be­gin­ning

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

WE have pub­lished many pic­tures over the years of Peter­bor­ough’s park­ways, and readers are al­ways happy to com­ment on them.

Colin Wil­son picked out River­side Mead, to the top right of our sec­ond picture, as it is where he now lives.

We won­dered where ex­actly the picture of part of the Frank Perkins Park­way be­ing built was taken.

Mr Wil­son said: “The fly­over be­ing con­structed is at the Black Bridge in Stan­ground where the old River Nene branches off through Stan­ground.

“The year is around 1983, and the fly­over was for the Frank Perkins Park­way. The row­ing club used to be lo­cated on the lower left of the picture and was re­lo­cated to its present site in Thorpe Mead­ows.

“In­ci­den­tally all the soil re­moved to make the row­ing lake was used to make up the road for the fly­over be­tween Stan­ground and Boon­gate.”
