Thank you so much for your replies regarding the wasteland query, cannot remember finding clay pipes, I do remember seeing trucks going along the railway, we were always warned not to go anywhere near the tracks. Someone started a fire one day in one of the disused buildings, the fire brigade was called and all the kids from miles around came to watch.

I attended Holbrooks nursery, infants and junior school from around 1969-1976, the main entrance being off Holbrooks Lane opposite Burnaby Road. At that time there were two separate school buildings, the nursery and infants in one and the juniors in another. We had a separate canteen situated by the playing field which I believe belonged to Dunlop. Schools from around Coventry use to congregate before the summer holiday for a fun afternoon of sporting activities. The main organiser of the day was a teacher named Mr Thomas. Does anyone have or know where I can obtain any photographs of the school before it was demolished please? Thank you in advance to anyone who can help. Regards Sharon
