My School - a Memory of Limpsfield.

Manor House was also a girls school. I was a boarder there from 1960-64. We used to have a tradition of end of term midnight feasts comprising penny post office bread, Edam cheese, baked beans and cider brought in for us by the day girls. On my last night before leaving I climbed out of the window and scaled the roof parapet. Unfortunately the Head Mistress saw our shadows casting on her lawn so we were 'for it'. However as that was my last term after doing my O Levels I was leaving next day so avoided any punishment!

Does anyone remember Diana Rowden who went to this school around 1930? I am writing a book on her and would be grateful for any memories of either her or the school.
