This would be around 11 years of age. We used to visit the Zoo by either walking from Ellesmere Port, on our bikes or as a special treat on the Stoke & Stanney
"Flier"the single decker Crosville bus which stopped outside the first old entrance.
WE loved the Elephant rides in front of the house & going down into the Aquarium.
Can still remember the Lions extension going up & the old pens for the Bears & Polar Bears & the "new" sea Lion Pool. Also still remember the slot & viewing machines where you came out of the Aquarium. Those were the days when you were able to go places without Mum's & Dad's.
