I was about 6 when I went to St Mary's...never knew why I went. I can remember going on the train with other children; my mum & dad did not visit and I'm not sure how long I was there. There was a secret passage down to the beach, it was scary. I also went to Fairfield House, it was a huge manor house with a huge staircase - we used to clean the stairs and if you were naughty you slept in the passage way! Would love to hear from anyone that went to either place. I went back in 1959 but St Mary's had been pulled down by then, Fairfield house is still there but it seems to be a nursing home. I now live in Canada.
