My memories are very clear of being ten years old and attending Burnhope Primary School. While I didn't realise it at the time, every teacher was brilliant. Miss Mary Dowson taught me in my last year at that school and eighteen of the kids, that year, passed the 11 Plus and off we went to change the world. Park Methodist Chapel was where we were taught religion and most families spent a good part of the week there as Brownies, Guides Mothers Union etc.Maybe because the bus service was unreliable and petrol was ratiioned it was agood idea not to leave the village in the evening - you might not get back. I left home when I was 18 to do nurse training and eventually returned to marry in the chapel and again to have my daughter baptised.
