Britannia Bridge
 Britannia Bridge   by Brian  (iPhone)
Or, whats left of it, just the surrounding wall.

Such memories! Wonder what's to happen with the site? Presumably the wall has been left in place to stop travellers setting up camp.

I used to love the look of that little school with its warm red bricks. On passing it as the nights drew in and the classroom lights were on, it always looked cosy and homely and I imagined the little children inside happy at their lessons. The teacher who taught me in what we used to call The Babies' Class at Ince Central School went on to teach at Britannia Bridge and told me of one little pupil who thought it was called "Pretend You're A Bridge" school!

I love listening to toddlers and what they think Irene. We had a few hilarious musings on Christmas Eve when the Priest asked them what present would they buy the Baby Jesus.... One said "A wristwatch" another said "Some new clothes" and another thoughtful child said, " A phone" ...

I would call them gypsies, Anne.


Comment by Geoff on 14th January 2020 at 16:09
Spring View Secondary Modern had classes there, woodwork for the boys and domestic science for the girls. living in Lower Ince... we had hours of fun on the Nursery Field, which was at the back of Britannia Bridge School. A good photo Brian that brings back many happy memories. Your Grandma also went to this school.

Some Gypsies may be travellers - but not all travellers are Gypsies.


Comment by Mick on 15th January 2020 at 21:57
It had to come down because in was old fashioned and damp.


Comment by Anne on 16th January 2020 at 09:44
I'm old fashioned and sometimes damp but hope I don't need to come down for quite a while yet :-(


Comment by irene roberts on 16th January 2020 at 13:26
Well said, Anne. I love old schools.


Comment by Mick on 16th January 2020 at 14:57
Anne do you not use them Tena Ladies things ? they are suppose to help according to the telly adverts.


Comment by Anne on 16th January 2020 at 17:05
Not that kind of damp Mick, a little hot and sweaty at times. Or, as a gentleman once said many years ago "ladies don't sweat, they gently perspire" :-(0


Comment by Anne on 16th January 2020 at 17:11
Mick, you know what it can be like in Singapore.


Comment by Lynne on 16th January 2020 at 21:10
"Parliament St", may be a sign of what is to come in London!


Comment by Mick on 16th January 2020 at 22:46
I know what you mean Anne, when I was a bit younger I use to make plenty of them gently perspire in that region.
