How very rude of True Wiganer (I note he hasn't posted giving his actual name). I think he would find that this photo will stir up some fond memories for the wiganers who attended school camp here. Thanks for sharing Keith.

The same hall was used to accommodate pupils from Cowley Boys School, St Helens in the 1960's.

I remember it from March 1965 and filling the straw mattresses, peeling spuds and being cold.
