The Sanitorium Mid1960's - a Memory of Chandler's Ford.

I remember the perimeter fence was of corrugated iron, my brothers and our pals used to climb through the gaps to steal the apples. Unfortunately the only trees to have eating apples were situated near to the main buildings. We used to swap sweaters and take it turns to run the gauntlet for them. No harm was intended or any damage done.

In later years we used to pick wild flowers for the residents and talk to the ones that were able to go outside.
