School Sports Day

Primary School Sports, about 1957

Football matches, school sports days and other sporting activities took place and still do, on the football pitch high above the railway line. However, until the 1980s this was a rough and irregularly shaped piece of ground, with no fences or other obstacles to prevent an enthusiastically kicked football from leaving the pitch and disappearing down onto the railway.
