Lived In School Lane In The 60s - a Memory of Oakley.

Hi. I lived in Oakley as a small boy - pre school age. My dad, Bob Johnstone, was a cowman and we lived in School Lane. We were a big Scottish family with 7 children. We moved around a lot due to his work but we made regular trips back to visit Oakley and The Chandos and still do. We lived there in the late 60, only for a couple of years. Dads sadly dead now but he always said it was his favourite place he lived.
