I am married to an ex Mirfield student called Tom Wharton. He attended the seminary from 1962-1964 and is saddened and shocked at the revelations on your site as he had a largely good experience there. His memories are happy ones although some of the routines seemed a little harsh – morning runs in all weathers, PE in full uniform before breakfast, working on the farm in winter etc. I have tried to access some photos with no success, can you advise how to see them please?
Tom may be remembered by his nickname ‘Chunky’ or ‘Tiny’ !
The photographs were taken off, by whom i do not know. I hope i have put them back on, bar one.
Thanks for pointing this out,
If any one wants old photos, i have quite a few
All the best Mike Fieldhouse
Do you want some to go on the blog?
If so, send them in and i will attempt to post them on the site.
