I went to this school and my brother Ken Richards about 72 years ago, Mr Jones was head master,mrs Brewer ,miss Tanner and miss close we’re teachers
Aw my old junior school, remember mr burley as sports teacher , was very strict but lovely bloke, great memories 😉
My old Juniors too! Mr Burley went mental at me one day because I was ringing the bell a bit manically! 😱🤣 he always used to sharpen the pencils with a craft knife!
Educated there back in the 1930’s, my brothers and sister were taught there too and I won my scholarship there. Wonderful memories.
Is it still a school..??
Mr Thomas got the ruler out for me, across the hand. Did anyone video or take pictures of the play we did in the 3rd year I think. The play was Noah. Chris Holloway was Noah and I was Mrs Noah.

There used to be a Blacksmith in Odd Down ..so many years ago ..at the Bottom of Oolite Rd ..
Mr Francis used to shoe alll the ponies for Ridley’s riding school. She used to keep the horses in fields along shepherds walk. Mr Francis would park his van at the bottom of one of the roads leading down (can’t remember the name). He had all the right size shoes already made to fit each pony with some trimming of the hooves.

The Viaduct pub.
Used to walk to the Viaduct when we were children living in Monkton Combe. I think the long building on the left was a skittle alley
I used to work there 40 odd years ago!!
I liked it better just as the foresters
I used to go in there back early 70's when I lived on the Springfield estate - it was a nice pub
I lived at Green down Terrace along by the Forrester from 1938- 1952 at number four.
Is that what it's called now...???
Spent many a night here with the boyfriend of the time!

Combe Hay ...
Doesn't look any different apart from the roundabout
Still not been painted or upgraded since then 🥴🤓
Who’s name was above the door then
Remember going there with my Mum & Dad, I think they had a beer garden at the back.
Remember when we parked Nasher's 3 wheeled disabled car in the middle of the Avenue one night... After a while...a bus conductor came into the pub & asked who the owner was....as the bus couldn't get past to go to town..!!!
