Skinningrove Valley

This photograph loaned to us by Geoff Hore; shows the valley off beautifully and the once well tended allotments. I am informed that Skinningrove school had an allotment here, did you ever work on it? John Winspear tells us: “The Senior School certainly did have an allotment here; situated just behind the gasometers and the road which ran between Skinningrove and Loftus. It was part of the school curriculum then and my year group was tasked with the Wednesday slot to tend it, under the attention of Mr. Temple (Duggie).”
