New School

A Memory of Baughurst

We moved to Baughurst from Australia as my father started a new job at the AWRE at Aldermaston.
My new school, the Hurst Secondary Modern, was a fairly new school. I spent the next 3 years there with mixed experiences, though I did have some very good friends who I have now lost touch with. The Baughurst estate was all owned by the AWRE and all the people who lived there were working at the AWRE site.
Baughurst was a very pleasant place to live, surrounded by countryside with Tadley and Basingstoke not far away with exelent bus services. I remember some great summers there.
