Former hay field - now car park - at Foxhole School
Former hay field - now car park - at Foxhole School, taken 7 months ago
When I was at Foxhole in 1952-6 this was an open meadow, which may have originally been planned as a sports field, immediately adjacent to the swimming pool. SX7962 : Site of the former swimming pool at Foxhole School
In the summer hay was harvested and I remember when there was a mixed party of swimmers using the pool (in the nude as was the norm at the time) the hay was being cut and the tractor driver drove ever so slowly past the pool to have a good look! As the pupils all took mixed nude bathing for granted we all have a good giggle.
