I went to Primrose Hill school for a short while early 60s. There were a few Druids Heath kids transported by coach to Primrose Hill, while school places were being made available nearer to Druids Heath.


I remember at the end of the School day, the Kids from Druids Heath always got away earlier as the coach had arrived.


 I can hear the teacher now,  he would say The Druids may  go. The rest of us had to wait before we could escape  :(

In the early 60s I was at Broadmeadow J&I opposite the Cartland Arms, we lived in Hillmeads Road at the time then moved to Druids Heath (it was nice back then) when I left junior school I went to Brandwood.

I know the area fairly well Coastal. Druids Heath did start out nice a bit like Primrose Hill and Pool Farm estate. I took my son there about ten years ago, he couldnt believe that Id lived in such a place, it was incredible the whole place looked vandalised. The folks that moved in during the 60s were so proud of their new homes with underfloor central heating. They were well kept. Last time I went past the Cartland, I think it was a mcDonalds...


Did you ever go along the canal or to Lifford Reservoir?
