Wateringbury School

Earlier in this blog I mentioned my memory of the dinner being delivered in aluminium thermos containers by Alfie Brooks. Those aluminium cases would be loaded onto a barrow with two large wheels in the middle and a wheel back and front and pushed round to the kitchen which was next to the drinking fountain. The following photos are of that barrow probably after school or at the weekend when it could be used to play on by John Long and friends.

The curved wall in the background was in the far corner of the playground and I remember it had yellow targets painted on it for ball practice.
The port holes in the wall looked onto a cherry orchard.
I have a feeling the wall is still there and is now the garden wall of the first house built on the old school site.
