Scope and content

When Lloyd Hughes Owens retired in the 1960s he put the finishing touches to his album all about schools in Bampton. There is mention of the Old Grammar School, now our library and the exhibition room used by West Ox Arts and the Archive called the Vesey Room and several other schools in Bampton. It is beautifully illustrated throughout and some of our senior citizens who went to school in Church View will recognise the old school rooms and classmates from the late 1940s and the early 1950s. I wonder, were you one of the boys who converted the old cowshed into a new woodwork room? We'd love to hear from you. If you study the picture of the school taken from the south west corner of the playground at the back, you can see a building that would have stood in the front playground, exactly where the present day weightlifting club has been built; the photograph was taken in 1922.
