"I thought I would have a look at the site of Fort Place this summer. The only thing I could identify was the wall which bordered Fort Street School.

On the Fort Place side of this wall it was all 'backgreen', and not a usable place for children. It was full of washing lines.  The hooks are still in the wall."
