To the Long Pond By Ken Regelous

Minimum Donation €25.00

On September 1st, 1940, Ken Regelous (Reg) was evacuated from the East End of London to King’s Lynn, a town he had never heard of before. He was billeted at Mill Houses, little more than a stone’s throw from the Long Pond where men and boys, but mostly boys, caught fish. ‘A war had started, I was evacuated with strange people, in a strange house, in a strange place. But it wasn’t because of these things that everything had changed. I already knew that life would never be the same because of fish and fishing.’

Reg’s adventures present not only a facinating picture of Lynn in wartime, seen through the eyes of an evacuee, but also a portrait of a little world apart, enjoyed by those who fished in the Long Pond and the surrounding waterways, and those who lived close to its banks. It is a world that has all but disappeared. Paperback. In excellent condition. Published by the Larks Press, Dereham, Norfolk 1999
