Old Maps of Lydney

Historic Maps of Lydney and the local area.

I spent a lot of time in the early 60's waiting for red and white buses there , to take me home from school.

If I'm not mistaken this is a picture of Lydney secondary modern school , I attended there in 1962 until I was 13 . Not a very happy time for me , I was a very nervous boy and didn't fit in very well. We moved later to Yate nr Bristol. The standard of education I found out later was low and my new school put me into a lower stream.
