Brympton D'evercy As I Knew It Claire School

A Memory of Brympton D'Evercy

I spent as a boy four years from 1970 to 1974 at this magnificent house, as it was a boys' boarding school. It was a fantastic place to be as a 10 year old, to study and grow up.
I yearn to return and see its splendid huge wooden staircase we use to slide down, its hamstone turret stairscases, and the japanese garden that we spent many hours tending due to detention!!!!
I hope the house is still in good hands it is a national treasure in my eyes and I feel privliged to have lived there for four years of Brympton's long history.
