Aye well I think we had similar cricket stumps too, and there was never an issue with fetching the ball when it went for six as the school was parallel with a dead-end street and the only car that regularly used it was the Headmaster's Austin.

Luxury... My secondary school didn't have any useful sort of playground or yard - and no real idea of quite where pupils were meant to go at breaks and dinner time (assuming they didn't want to stand at the gates smoking and chucking things at the people of Kirk Ella...)

That must have been a tempting target! I do recall that when the buses conveying the lunchtime shift workers to the nearby factory went past, we used to substitute apples for the cricket ball and aim to smack them through the open section of the bus windows.... just in case said workers were feeling a bit peckish, I suppose!
Cheers, Steve

Well, I went to the infants school in Anlaby, just by the bus garage (but it was a good half-century or more ago!). Will that get me a doffin' if I come in?

Delete 'fish' and things ain't changed much - except the phone boxes have always been cream and not white!

Yes. Well, creamish. They could do to sort out their home broadband products, though.
Hull Kingston Rovers and whatever Hull FC are currently called.
