Marble Hill

Marble Hill Lido

"This postcard which was published in the 1960s shows adults and children at a then regular swimming place at Marble Hill towpath in Twickenham. These steps down to the river are still there and can be found by the entrance gate to the park that has the famous black walnut tree on the right. My mother and her brothers learnt to swim at this place back in the 1930s and I spent many hours both day and night in the 1950s and early 60s fishing with my dad and brother from these same steps."
