I was born in Bredbury in 1941 and went to Barrack Hill School, I remember Mrs Gyton, Mrs Heaton, Mrs Stannier. I also remember the dinner meals being delivered to the school in milk churns. Later a Kitchen and Dining Room was built. I think another Teacher was called Mrs or Miss Roper? I left that school and went to Bredbury Secondary Modern School, leaving in summer 1956. Teachers there were Mr Kershaw, Mr Robertshaw, Mr Douglas, Mr Taylor, Mr Carduss, Mr Blakeman Mr Masters, Mr Benion?, the Head Teacher was Mr J. C. Edwards. One place I remember playing was a field where Hopwoods scrap yard used to scrap the old tramcars. I also remember walking past Black and White Farm with my parents on Sundays on a regular afternoon walks. Also with friends Peter Whyatt, Alan Farr, and others going onto the island in the River Goyt near the wier, lighting a fire and cooking potatos. I left Bredbury in 1960 when I got married. returning in 1966 and leaving again in 1970, up to 1960 I lived in Woodbank Avenue, from 1966 to 1970 I lived in Bents Avenue, Bredbury. I am now retired and living in Winsford, Cheshire.
