Our Ladys High School - a Memory of Dartford.

I was a boarder at this school on West Hill in the 1950s. It looked, and felt, like a prison. I started at the age of four, and hated every minute of life as a boarder. The domestic nuns (Sisters Immaculate and Teresa) could be very cruel. But the same order of nuns was far more cruel to kiddies at an orphanage at Pantasaph in Holywell. (BBC Wales website refers)

Because of my horrible memories, I regard Dartford as a grim place. Oh! and a paediatrician from St Thomas's Hospital was murdered opposite the old school about three years ago.
