Bearnes School - a Memory of Newton Abbot.

I was born in Newton Abbot 1952. My brother John and I went to Bearnes School until John left to go to a new school above our home in Penn Inn Close. We left Newton Abbot when I was about 6 years old and moved to Bedfordshire. I remember the park (Penn Inn) the pub (Penguin) and the sounds coming from the swimming pool (now Sainsburys). I do go back occasionally on visits; I now live in Plymouth.
