Six years before this photo was taken, and after moving up the road from St. Gregory’s primary school in Yorktown, I learned to swim (properly) in the icy outdoor pool in front of the middle building, played with toy cars in the sand and roots of the reddish tree in the middle of the picture, lost a Dan Dare “space spinner” on the roof of the building behind the trees, and skirmished to the obelisk in the woods on top of the hill without permission.
The school was re-located and re-named to St. Augustine’s in 1996, whereupon the buildings were demolished and replaced by a red-brick housing estate.
