Westridge annual camping trip to High Wray bay in the Lake District. Photos, via John Fox, from Mr Cook the PE Teacher and posted on the Bedlington Facebook groups. 

Jack Kid commented :-  great photos from the annual trip to the Lake District, at the start of the school summer holidays. I think I went on 3 of these, probably 1962-63-64. One year, in the advance party that put up the bigger tents, we travelled in the back of a lorry (like a furniture lorry). No seats, no windows, just sitting/lying on the tents & other equipment. I recognise one or two people, but not many. Therefore, this probably was 1965 or after.

Another thing that has come back to me. It was usual for us to take any canoes/kayaks that had been built in the Woodwork classes in the back of the "furniture lorry" and we would then paddle away on Lake Windermere (or whatever lake we were near to).

Esme Dent comented :- the camping was at High Wray bay near Hawkshead across from Windermere...loved the school camps...we used to take the trampoline from the gym as well..x
