I pass braimwood, well what used to be braimwood whenever I go to Roundhay Park and often cut through the site past the rugby pitch. I used to go here only a few years back and might have some photos lyinng around somewhere. Its strange to see a massive empty space with the only remains being the Big Mamma and the Tennis Courts.

When you took pics of the tennis courts, did you happen to look at the old sannd pit to the side of them.. There is a grave at the end of it now with a wooden cross. Not sure if it is there to say R.I.P Braimwood or pehaps the caretaker Stuart unfortunately lost one of his dogs? Not sure.

I remember the 'Big Wall' or Mamma being a place of initiation as a test how hard you were. Boys were expected to at least be able to 'drop off' the wall, where you ease yourself over the edge until you're just supported by your fingertips and then dropping to the floor. Some kids would even jump from the top, especially if they had their doc martins on. I remember the Big Wall used to look massive and intimidating when I was a 10 yr old in 1975. Looking at the photo's now it doesn't look so high. I completed my first 'drop-off' the wall within weeks of starting in 1975, very few first years had done it, most kids didn't do it until the third year.

Anybody remember any of the teachers or kids from the mid 70's?

I remember being in 'Baggie Bowler's' class in the third year, 77-78.
