If that is a back door and a window that doesn't fully retract, reminds me of an old car.

Like the one that went missing in that murder in the mid sixties around these parts.....

Don't let your dogs swim in the pools of water up there.  My sister in laws dog swam up there last summer, later started fitting and didn't recover, the vet had to put him to sleep.

You have to be careful with dogs swimming in water that may contain algae, particularly blue-green algae which is harmful to animals. Not sure if Leachcroft is deep enough to be affected and might just be polluted with something else but I think the aquadrome in Rickmansworth has warnings about it.

yuck ...I hate to think what's been dumped in those woods and leeched into the water (heavy metals etc from car batteries for example). Plus rats (Weils disease etc)

There wasn't anything wrong with the dog.  He was definitely fit and healthy, and very good natured (not that it has anything to do with it)  And I am not certain of which "puddle" he was swimming in, but it was definitely Leachcroft Woods.  But nevertheless, he started fitting within hours of being in one of them, he wouldn't stabilise so they had no alternative, as he was fitting badly, and would certainly not have been the same dog that he was if he recovered.

Agreed algae is not good for any mammal.  It was during the rather hot part of last summer, so between August and September it happened, so there might have been algae, I am more convinced its something else nasty leaked into the water.

Mind you gone are the days of swimming in Black Park too...
