Buttermere School

A Memory of Buttermere

My sister Muriel and I attended buttermere school.I passedmy 11plus and went to Keswick school as a boarder.Muriel passed hers two years later and went to Cockermouth grammar.
During the years culminating in 1948 (the war years)I recall Butter ere as being an idyllic place to have a childhood. School with our wonderful teacher Mrs Beattie was a real joy.Mrs Beattie travelled from Workington every day by miter bike.
