Happy campers at Henley Fort

Thanks largely to George Ford, the young geography teacher, and Ray Spencer, the sports teacher, boys at the secondary school in Picquets Way, Banstead, had many opportunities to go on educational and recreational cycle tours and outdoor camping holidays in the late 1950s and early '60s – in this case to Henley Fort, the Surrey County Council education centre near Guildford. Cheeky grins all round in this photograph, taken in 1957. That’s Frank Low on the left (sporting a trendy bobble hat), and Chris Roberts, standing second from right. But who are the others?

Christine, thank you for asking. Yes indeed, go ahead - and if any similar images from me appeal, then the same applies; there's no need to ask every time.

I went to Henley Fort in 1960 when I was at Banstead Hall; a lot of photos were taken and videos (9mm) type. I was wondering if any one had access to those pics..John Harvey

Mr R Spencer took us for pt and was a good teacher.

It was nothing for him to get into a boxing ring with Jimmy Nye living at Walton on the Hill.
