School trips of yesteryear.

This has only just come to my attention, but after the Grenfell conclusion that it is still 'safe' to use cladding that catches fire, I was wondering about the Main stand cladding ?

What standards does this meet ? OK, the chances of anything catching fire are extremely remote, but out of interest, I wondered what its capabilities were of resisting fire ? And yes, it's going to be pulled down soon,....but I was curious

Long gone are the days when we could build houses from asbestos 'the material of the future'. I even went on a school trip to an asbestos factory in the late 1970's

That is genuinely amazing

I thought our college trip to an industrial laundry in Wimbledon was bad!

We went to the Cutty Sark.
About 5 years running.

Regards the cladding - at the end of the day, it's hardly a high rise block is it? In the event of a fire you either use the nearest fire exit, or walk out onto the pitch!

I'd be more concerned that it's a wooden stand TBH rather than worry about the cladding

As a school kid:
I bought cigarettes off the ice-cream man who parked in the playground at lunch
Visited an asbestos factory where they made pre-fab buildings
Went down a mine-shaft and bought some coal-tar soap (coal tar now recognised as containing toxins and carcinogens)
Ran a cross-country course (off school premises) where the flasher and paedo hung-out.
Made home-made bazookas out of fireworks with the cub-scouts
Went knocking on doors of an evening , collecting money for the cubs.

I remember us having a fireworks rocket battle across Bellngham Play Park with another group of lads one night. Happy days.

Yep. South of Bletchingly and I believe that Judi Dench lives there. That windmill is really old - it's written somewhere that when they were building it, they could see smoke from the Great Fire of London.

Same here. Very interesting and back when they pretty much made every component that went into the Ford Cortina.

Also did a Ball Bearing factory up Colchester way and Dungernes power station.
