Marton Residential Boardiong School - a Memory of Whitegate.

I was a pupil at Marton from 1965 to 1967 and have many memories and some pictures. I was in Stevenson House, run by Truck Taylor and the Grey House, run by Billy Doyle. We were always under control so visits to the town were always to church.

I'd like to know whatever became of the school, is it a housing development now?

Yes built on. I walked the derelict railway line at the other side of the school field a few years ago. Just a few miles nearby.
