My Time At Belchamp Walter School

A Memory of Belchamp Walter

I was very interested to read Elisabeth's account.I used to teach at Belchamp Walter School and have many happy memories of my time there with Mrs Pearson, she was a remarkable person. Married to a local farmer, she gave birth to a baby girl during my time there and Miss Meadows took over the running of the school for a short time. I can remember many of the children who were there and wonder what became of them all. It was a small school and although the facilities were rather primitive it was a happy place. When the weather was very cold we all pulled up our chairs and worked around the old tortoise stove which gave out a good heat. I lived 11 miles away and used to cycle to work every day. I later acquired a small moped known as a corgi which made things easier .I remember a Rosemary Branwhite and wonder if she was connected to Elisabeth.
