When I asked a group of girls who had been at Hatherop Castle in the 1960s whether the school had had a lab in those days they gave me a blank look. ‘A laboratory?’ I expanded, hoping to jog their memories. ‘Oh that kind of lab!’ one of them said. ‘I thought you meant a Labrador.’
The cruel teachers. The pashes on other girls. The gossip.
The giggles. The awful food. The homesickness.
The friendships made for life. The shivering cold. Games of lacrosse, and cricket.
