Memory Lane

A Memory of Bellingham

I was at Brownrigg from 1963 to 1966, I was in Pennine dorm, Lorna Herron. I remember Bent Toe, he had to be put down at the school, a girl called Diane was really upset about that. I remember gathering bracken on the fells for the bonfire, freezing cold winters, dances on a Saturday night, church on Sundays and the dreaded hikes, and I made some good friends. I have been back a few years ago, the only person I recognised was Trevor Ord, I hope to be able to go back again in the not so distant future.
