The rest of the houses on King Edward's Road and the Close were built (at my guess) in the mid 1960s when the extensions to the rear of the houses were built and the houses in the Gun Copses built...
The houses in the Gun Copse roads predate the extensions to the boarding houses by quite some time. The former were there when I was at CH, and had been occupied for two or three years at least, but the latter weren't. There weren't any new houses in King Edwards Road while I was there either.

Well, she didn't take to me too kindly and I ended up finding her under the piano in the sitting room... she still wouldn't eat the food whilst I was in the house!

The best dog I've known at CH, and still know, must be Oscar, owned by Mr and Mrs Phillips. He's a chocolate brown lab, and I've known him since my first days in Peele A.

......... and on the subject of dogs !

When our family were down for the sixth form open day recently and we were walking round the school.....

Behind the dining Hall, Counting House side, next to Peele....

One of the 'new' houses, my GD saw a beautiful huge dog sitting in the small garden and would have loved to make friends, especially as she is the co-owner of one of the largest Rotties I have ever seen in my life !

Details please, Janet !

Youngest daughter said she thought ir was a Ridgeback. I wasn't near enough.

Quite a rare dog, these days !

The ex-F1 racing driver Jody Scheckter (one of my clients) has 2 of these very nasty dogs.

I can't understand why certain breeds of dogs are described in the press as 'Dangerous' or 'Nasty'.

It's the owners/trainers that make them that way.

I think I've only ever said 'Hello' personally to two Ridgebacks, and they were both fine, if memory serves !

Some types of dog are bred purely to be aggressive, such as guard dogs which are surely bred to be unfriendly to people they havent met before without being trained to do so. These ridgebacks were snapping and fighting with eachother, and were pretty menacing to me, though the owners treated them with love and I am sure they were affectionate dogs to the immediate family.

Where I got my Jack Russell, they also bred Ridgebacks, but I was not interested because I had seen them in Madrid.
A friend had one and his neighbour complained that the Ridgeback was continually getting out and "molesting" his dog. Since my friend lived in a house with a tall wall around the garden, he waived off the complaint until he saw his dog leap and scale the 2 and a half metre gate.
Not the dog to have in a flat.
