  3. Hi Steve,

    I don’t know. The only stuff about the school I can find online is about the legal situation of the Trust. I assume the records must have been sent somewhere. I can’t imagine they would have just been destroyed.

  4. Thanks for your efforts in providing these photos.
    I was at that hell hole in around 1975.
    I’m hoping there may be some sort of compensation scheme set up in the future to claim against this awful institution

  5. Were you at Heatree, Danny, or at one of the homes? As far as I remember, there was Heatherway, Clapperway, and what was called “old Heathercombe” but was the original Heathercombe Brake from which the Trust took its name.

  6. I WAS THERE FOR HEALTH REASONS LONG BEFORE THE SCHOOL, IN 1956/8 OR THERE ABOUT’S,AND WAS TAKEN TO SEE BECKY FALLS, I HATED IT THERE.

  7. I’m not sure if this is the way to go, but if you want to email me directly, feel free.

    I was at Heatree house. I remember a few names.

  8. HI IAN POULTON,IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN ,ALL I CAN REMEMBER WAS THAT THERE WAS A POND IN THE GARDEN, AND THERE WAS A PORCH WHERE WE HAD TO TAKE OUR SHOES OFF,IT WAS AROUND 1956/8 ,CAN’T REMEMBER MUCH AS I DID NOT LIKE IT THERE.

  9. Memories come flooding back.. Probably best to leave them where they are. bloody horrid place.

  10. Steven Jones, if you are on FB search for heathercombe brake school and request admittance, there are a number of attendees from the 50’s & 60’s on there that I am sure will remember you
