I spent 6 very happy years in Folkestone as a boarder at Brampton Down School, to this day, I still think of the town as home. It was without doubt the loveliest town I have ever lived in.

Forgot to say between 1963 and 1969

Dear Lyn,

I was there 58 to 64 but I can't remember hardly ever going out of the school except for long walks. how did you manage to get around and see the lovely town?

What was your maiden name?

I think you must be the Barbara Smith with a sister Jenny who was in my year, rather than the younger Barbara Smith with the red hair who Mill made eat her meat standing up. - Linda Hand

I was at Brampton Down and Folkestone is no longer the town it was - it is a bit sad
