    It's dirty, thorny in thirty Dorney!

    Dorney is great - as a kid, in winter when the common used to flood and then freeze it made a great place to slip around on the ice - unless you were my Dad who was obviously heavier than us and went through:biggrin:.

    And my mum used to do milk recording at one of the farms on the common.

    Very funny ... though I had to think about it for 2 seconds first....

    As well as doing common cows ... she also used to record some very uncommon cows up the road ... and even had the key to the gates - it was a big old metal thing (as the guard wasn't there at 5 am then). I doubt they would give her the key these days.
  7. The cattle grids at each 'end' of the common are a bit 'tasty'! The first one took me by surprise:wacko: - I used the 'peasant' gate next time!

    Nice area though, and offered a different view of Windsor Castle ;)

    Clue, reverse the letters to find a famous CC residents handle.

    There's a really funny-ish piece on Dorney on a spoof wikipedia site somewhere. I'll go look for it.

    One for triv fans: the first pineapple grown in England was grown in Dorney, hence the name of the local there.

    edit: Didn't take long!
