I attended laygate infants 1926 then went to Laygate Boys
(girls were seperate) the school was supposed to be sinking
One of my teachers was a Mr Tweed He was injured as a
Tank commander in WW2. Laygate Lane School seems to
to have disappeared from the face of the earth.

You are absolutely correct and I offer my most abject
I was born in 1924 in Stevenson St lived in Marsden st then
to Oak Ave when I was 5. started school but only for a few months
