SMG has mixed memories of his life in Brockhall. Here he talks of activities he enjoyed.


“That’s where we used to do PE. There used to be a church tower. I used to go in gym. That’s in – yeah, I remember that. We used to go in gym and all that kind of thing in there. Not a gym it was a PE place … Church Tower we used to call it. I forgot what the name was now… It weren’t a church… PE in there. Like trampolining, rails on walls and all that, we used to do all that. So quite good. Because there were a PE mistress and PE teacher. And they were both good. They used to take us to baths – Shadsworth, Clitheroe and Hyndburn. And they used to take us like on a Monday… Monday and Wednesday I think it were. So I’ve mixed feelings about the place because there’s a lot of good feelings about it, mixed memories of it. On the other hand there’s a dark side to it. It’s like anything else isn’t it?”
