Gordon Richardson: Nature Walks
Here Gordon describes being pushed in a pram so that he could join in.
TranscriptI remember things like we used to go out on nature walks every Friday afternoon. Of course all the other children were able to run around and up the back lane, through the fields, and I was always put in a great big old fashioned pram and pushed up the lane by my mother or my grandmother, depending on who was free that afternoon, so that I could be part of the outing.
