Although not all these photos are from the era for which this website usually represents, Peter Archer (1958-62) is doing great work in driving the efforts to reunite former Uplyme boarders. I am very happy to host these photos on this website (AJH April 2013)
Note for Tyler's Wood boarders:- Take a look at Michael Claridge's evocative look at life there in the fifties.
Largely due to the efforts of Peter Archer, there was a good turnout of ex boarders at this years OB's event. John Saunders was on hand to take this photo and Peter did the leg work in providing the names. Click here to view the photo.
The photos on the right and below were supplied by Peter Archer (1958-62) who writes:-
I wonder if the attached photograph might be considered a suitable addition to your collection. It was taken in 1951 by Reg Howard and sent to me by Bob Mitchell to whom I am very grateful.
The photos on left feature Peter King (56-62) and Nick Avery (58-62) - and the pictures were taken 50 years apart!
