Wow thanks for the masses of hard work put into the site! What a giggle I've had looking at the photos, and marvelling at some of the diversities people have taken in their lives since being BAA'ers.

I did 2 years of Graphics at BAA 1975 to 1976 and wasn't able to get back in to finish a 3rd year in 77, I'm really annoyed with "Zenno Bender" for that. As a disabled person, its taken me years to achieve a level in my life where I felt I'd at last compensated for that massive put down. It was the first time as a working class lad I'd come across owning class kiddies who had more money & influence than my working life since or my parents ever had. Still I look back on those 2 years as two of the most formative of my life being then 20-22 yoa.
I eventually married Philippa Davenport (Foundation Year 1975-6) & although we are now divorced we have two wonderful daughters Catherine & Rachael both of whom have some talent with the Arts. I look forward to hearing from anyone who remembers me, or can jog my memory, and I'm so sorry for setting David Peduzi's jeans on fire when he was wearing them in the Royal Oak one night, (he survived, but the Oak's cat lost a few whiskers). I'm also looking for Robert Stileman (sorry Rob, lost your details 11 years ago).

I'm now a "Network Planner" (old name - Planning Engineer ESI) in the South West based in Midsomer Norton (20 miles from old BAA) and have a Professional Management Qualification! (so there Benno!! I find it a mission in life to assist people in life rather than watch them sink!).
I am in touch with Gerald Lilley, Vince Parker & Andrew Dunning (all at long distance xmas card type,).
Cheers.

I was looking on the net for anything on Henry Cliffe and Peter Kinley and found myself transported back at BAA. Fond memories, even if Peter Simpson ate my first ever attempt at oil painting (and me) for breakfast. I have seen him since and was impressed that he remembered my name (perhaps my painting was that bad).

Oh God - is it really 31 years since I first crossed the hallowed portals of Corsham Court?

After a couple of false starts in less suitable accommodation, I too ended up in the attic of the sainted Nelly Logan.

Across the landing was Bernadette O'Neil, a sculptress forever remembered for administering an involuntary and very painful hair removal treatment to a Beechfield life model when casting her naked lower regions in plaster of Paris (and I'm not talking about her legs - it still makes my eyes water to think about it!!!)

Downstairs was painter Janet Rowland - easily identified by her enormous eyes and an afro hairstyle the size of the Millennium Dome.

Where are you now chaps? And where are all the other stars of the 1971 and 72 intake?

Steve Lee - last heard of in Coventry with Corinne Ian Palfreyman - last heard of in Bath Michael Smallwood - lived in Reading Janina Szebatowiz (or something like that) from Rochdale

I'm now in Leamington Spa working as a buyer. I've been a freelance motor racing journalist, freelance magazine editor, Advertising Manager, Assistant Identity Manager (abetting Gill Fry at Regional Railways) and all manner of other things - but never an actual graphic designer!

Ah well - education is never wasted

Seasons greetings to all from Nova Scotia. (I am writing in December 2002)

It has been a while since we last checked in. The site seems to have gained some new bells and whistles.

Our mid-60s (that's years attended not ages) entries seem to be thin on the ground. Good to see a note from Pam Mitchell - where's Pam Bray these days? - and a reference to Salima Hashmi whose web page seems not to be working. Are you there Salima?

Since we last wrote, Gill and I have become grandparents for the first time. All very strange when 'viewed' within the context of a trip down memory lane to Corsham!

I notice that the URL of my Web page may have given some problems. As far as I know, all is well at:

http://home.primus.ca/%7Ebmaycock/

Would be pleased to hear from any of the 1962-66 inmates. Any word of Mike Penny (student not lecturer) and John (Taffy) Lewis with whom I shared the other end of the hut used by the visiting lecturers? God they were noisy! And what about Eric Berry?

Gill also wonders about Rosie Parvin and Jen Sutcliffe amongst others.

In 1986 we took a family vacation from Dallas, Texas to England. We stayed in Windsor for a few days, then headed to Bath. I took a wrong turn and went through Pickwick. It did not show up on the map, but was a most interesting place.

We found a pub there that had a plaque on the front that indicated that Charles Dickens stayed there while he wrote some of the Pickwick Papers. I have not been able to find any information on this and was hoping you might be able to provide something to prove I did not dream this all up.

...but of course, it's all true!

Charles Dickins?... must be a typo! - click the graphic to view the sign.

We recently met Mark Charles Dickens, Charles Dickens great, great grand-son, and he seemed to doubt my story. He said there was no such place as Pickwick.

Thanks for any information you might be able to provide, and thanks for you wonderful web site. The pictures of Pickwick brought back a very pleasant rush of memories.

I was the photo technician in the grandly named Department of Visual Communication from 68-71 (Rosemary Ellis, Ewan ??, John Vince) hope that they pumped out the spilled chemicals from the darkrooms in the stable block before they did the cottage conversions!

This is Gill Greatorex here (used to be Gill Fry - well, actually still am, it's only the name that's changed!). I think Debbie Pengelly was asking after me so here goes with some info....... (I've no idea how to add any info, let alone any incriminating photos, so presume this is the way in).

Still alive and kicking, now living in Devon in a ridiculous old farm house which drops ceilings every now and again. Gave up commuting to London from Bath when I moved down here and am now working for the Environment Agency, having a great time causing havoc whilst attempting to save the planet! (Something to do with my favourite colour being green I suppose). Secretary of Women's Challenge Club (no, don't ask!), enjoying Cajun dancing, got half a boat and wish I was 10 stone lighter. Yep that just about sums it up!

Your website (Pete ff pointed me in the right direction) had my mind reeling back to some great times - good grief, is it really me in the 1976 photos from Debbie? Yes, agree with everyone else, BAA was rather unique. It also had me rummaging through my old stuff to find I still had some of the projects we did. Time for a clear out, methinks!

I keep in touch with: Pete ffoulkes (now happily living in San Francisco with 3rd wife - I was best man at the last wedding) Pam Grant (now happily living in a pointy house in Cumbria with Colin - a great cartoonist - and Mannie, the dog) Lyn Patey (now happily living in brightly coloured flat in Leamington Spa with Neville). Roddy McLauchlan (now happily living just outside of Bath with Janice, boat and 2 bouncing boys) Annie Peskett & Graeme Puckett (still happily living in Bath with occasional forays to Exeter for some great dance classes)

I have also come across Peter Randall-Page who is a stone sculptor living and working in a Dartmoor village not far from where I am. Our paths crossed as I got involved with our village Millennium mosaic, stone sculpture and trail map. We went to see him to ask some advice about the brilliant sculpture trail he had done for Drewsteignton and he kept saying 'don't I know you from somewhere?' He suddenly twigged and dug out an old photo of himself at Corsham with long hair and then I recognised him!

Debbie - would love to link up for some serious jawing - only about 25 years to catch up on..............

Cheers for now
Gill

What an amazing site. I can't believe it. It would be great to hear from anyone who remembers me.
I am alive and well and living in Canada via South Africa. It would be great to get together with Richard Ireland, Jenny Francis, Louise Wardle, David Theobald, Brian Wall, Steve Roe and the rest of the gang from Visual Communications 76-79. Does anyone know what became of Maggie Curtis, Sue Langford, Sara Bishop, Kate Strachan or Mike Hope?

I'd love to write something smart, but I'm suffering from memory overload.

I've been checking in to see if any contemporaries from my time at Corsham (’64-’67) have signed in; but no, I am part of the lost generation. I seem to remember we were a pretty un-organiseable bunch. It was the Sixties after all. I saw a great logo the other day: “The Society for Respect for the Sixties” - a yin-yang symbol with mickey mouse ears!

I had a great time at Corsham and have a few recollections of the staff: Life drawing in the Barn, Mike Penney said, “now the suns come out, are you going to colour her yellow”?

Andrew Wilson, responding to having the rubber ferrule popped off his walking-stick by Hazel, who was first in line behind him, and stepped on it, as we did a music hall, tight line, funny walk behind him, Andrew whirled imperiously around and informed us in proper scots, “you are the most immature groop, I have ever taken.” Andrew also enlightened us to the proper inclination of men and women, Men being properly vertical and women, at their most appropriate, horizontal. I think it was with reference to architecture, but we of course, greeted the idea raucously. Definitely an “immature groop”

Similarly Isabel Symons seemed unaware of the implications of her tale of poppies and birds in her backyard. “I invited the postman in to see them: I told him, ‘my Tits are gorged with opium’. He said it, ‘gave him a thrill to see them.’ ‘It gives me a thrill too.” said Isabel in all innocence to a group holding their sides and falling about.

I must confess to a similar gaff, when I set up a bunch of chairs, as a still life, at Frome Grammar School, on teaching practice, to have the sixth form students experience “figure field” relationships. “As you draw” I said, “I want you to look at what’s between the legs” The resulting cheer that went up, brought the Headmaster from next door to investigate.

I would love to hear from '64 - '67ers

I recently had some photos sent to me from Lynne Castell (was Jenkin) of the Corsham picnic. It really took me back! The only two I remembered were Dave Mann and Liz Martin neither of who I would ever have recognised. My time at Corsham was a very happy one and I appreciated everything I learnt there.
These days if you can type a couple of words together on a Mac Computer or PC, people think they can be called Graphic Designers.
I made many friends from Sue Roberts who was my room mate at Weavers Cottage. Moore Kenny my moody Irish boyfriend. From Chas Mitchell and Peter Town and Philip Higson and John Kerr, Val Prince, Billy Nichols. And the lecturers ...the famous Harry, the Lithographer, John Vince the Silk Screen chap, book binding, paper making, photography. We were very privileged. Coming from Johannesburg I certainly thought so!

Just discovered this brilliant site and enjoying the full nostalgia wallow.
Lost contact with almost everyone from Corsham so happy to hear from anyone who was there at the same time. I have to confess to being the mystery photographer responsible for the Mr BAA pictures posted by Graham so I will have the rest of the negs somewhere - and probably a load more given that I never seemed to do anything else for most of my time. Will post as soon as I have chance!!
Great to see some familiar names - any news on Melanie Turner, Caroline Hogan, Tristram Woolston, Julie Depledge (was teaching at UWE last I heard), Helen Harris, Lukas Stroebel etc..

This is a really great, nostalgic, relevant (still) Web page which I got to through Mike Marsden (thanks Mike). There's so many memories it's hard to know where to start. I could only find a few photos (why didn't we take more photographs!) - from my group John and Barbara, Penny Davenport, and Kai Moe.

I've been living in Mexico for 24 years, came here on route from Sydney (8 years there), passing through but stayed, and work in editorial design and illustration. If anyone gets down this way, let me know - plenty of sun and tequila...

Have been in the classroom in Northamptonshire teaching ceramics and painting as head of department until I retired in 1998. Retired to restore an old house and live back in Whitby, Yorkshire. Two grown up children living in Oxford and London. Still painting among other things. Golf a recent challenge.
From Corsham still in touch with Bobbie Deighton, Pam Hirst, Pam Bray, Di Reeves, Dave Heseletine, Mary Shimmel and Derek and Margaret Pope among others. Also Paul and Jenny Taylor.
Would be delighted to hear from anyone who remembers this group.

Have just had a look at the picnic photos and very good and animated they look too. I even spotted one old hand doing a bit of sketching. I can't say I actually recognised anyone but if anyone at the picnic was at Corsham between 76-79 I apologise.

I'm very impressed that so many people put in an appearance because, of course, there were weighty things on the mind of the nation - that being England v Denmark. Even I was interested and I am illiterate in football. Anyway it looked as though everyone was enjoying it all if its repeated next year I'll try and join in!

I've spent ages in this website, steeped in nostalgia, since I discovered it last week! I'm hopeless at remembering names so none of the names in the guestbook ring a bell. I used to get around on a bright yellow bike with blue seat and handle grips or alternatively as passenger in Serena Crestani's flower-power mini van. I was one of the Northerners from deepest Northumberland (more red wine than Newcastle Brown)!

I have just returned from the picnic by the lake where I heard about this site. Although I still live near Corsham, seeing this site has reconnected me in a different way with my time at the college. I started at Corsham in 82, 20 years ago and some of us still in contact are getting waves of nostalgia!.
It is good to hear the bad as well as the good in the guest book. I will see if I have any photos.
Thanks for doing this.

Interesting to browse through the photographs.
I did sculpture 80-83 and have quite a number of photos from this time. When I have got round to sorting through them I will send some of the interesting ones in. Some people may recognise themselves in various states of decadence and dissolution. I have some quite good ones from a Halloween party held underneath Corsham Court, and a 'hippy' party held in 4 Church Street in 1980. I also have a number of black and white photos developed in the very dusty fine art dark room and some stroboscopic photos (multiple exposures) of Juliet Waylen who was doing painting (and was also a great dancer).
Will inform others about site.

I was never at Corsham as a student, only as a visitor, but your site has put me in touch with an old school friend, Jeff Camish, who was there circa 1964 and for that I am extremely grateful. We haven't been in contact for about 37 years but its amazing how time can unwind with the first email. Superb site even for someone who doesn't belong to the club.

What amazes me is that you have captured Corsham on a sunny day! A rosy dream of what never was. . . Let's face it, it was almost always raining. I remember the gloom, the grey, the rain, the rain, the rain . . . Dear god, the three years I spent at Corsham were the worst years of my life. It was aweful. Not just the weather - the people were aweful, the facilities for fine art at Beechfeild were dreadful - it was so cold; the tutors were the worst. Boy, what a scam they had going there - none of the full time staff gave a shit (except about themselves) and then there was you-know-who, lurking around every prodromal schizophrenic waiting for a glimpse of psychosis - jeez, what a sadist that guy was! Sadly the gothic beauty of the Court and Village did not compensate the pain of the fine art program.

Nostalgic for Corsham, not I.

Grant Wood's "Daughters of Revolution" is a fine illustrative painting, you know the one, with the heads and shoulders of three particularly sour smug looking ladies in front of a painting of Washington crossing the Delaware, well I think I saw Grant Wood run screaming from the front door of Corsham Court the other week . . . was staying in Bath with Paul & Lynda (ex-BAA) and we popped over to Corsham for the afternoon, I decided to buy us tickets to see just the grounds, you go inside the front door and to a desk alongside the main staircase. After buying the tickets I said to one of the three uniformed ladies "Can I just pop my head round the door of that room?", the original ball-room which used to be OUR dinning room, "No certainly not, you haven't purchased a ticket for inside the House", Paul thought she was joking, I didn't and restrained myself from either asking her how Grant's therapy sessions were going these days, or playing the I-used-to-be-a-student-here-a-long-time-ago card . . . as I walked past the open door of the old dinning room I used my BAA student 180 degrees hyper-sensitive vision to see what I wanted, and I swear I heard a hissing sound behind me . . . this was my first time in Corsham for a long time and well I must report, the grounds looked bloody fantastic and we didn't even see one gardener or anyone else for that matter, and the weather was brilliant, a real heavy shower for 15 mins then 45 mins sunshine then another shower and so on, rainbows over the lake, even the old bike sheds are still there, and that distinct Court-side sound of gravel crunching steps accompanied by peacocks calling, then along the High Street, into a couple of charity shops looking for refined kitsch objects, does a "Dallas Annual" qualify? and I believe that hall-marked stainless steel is the new delft? Yeah, the old town looked good, even the old Alms Houses at the end of the south walk have been tarted up and there's talk of reopening the railway station, with the help no doubt of a little grant? . . . . let it be

Corsham seems like a lifetime away now! I only have snippets of hazy memories so it was great to find this website. I laughed at Michael Simpson's comment, 'do you remember me?', remember him?! he used to scare the living daylights out of me!!!! I used to have nightmares that he was a vampire! How young & impressionable I was! Don't worry I wasn't severely psychologically damaged! (All other memories were good!)

My mother, Hazel Norbury, studied at BAA in the mid-late 1950s. I'm not sure of the precise dates but she was married in August 1960 and working by then. I believe she did the National Diploma in Design. If anyone scrolling through this site remembers her, please e-mail me and I'll put you in touch - my parents have not yet caught up with computers. I am in Western Australia, but they live in Kent. When they come out here later this year, I'll introduce her to the site!

After forty years since leaving BAA, what a surprise to discover I now had a link to Corsham. Memories of people, students, tutors, places, events and incidents long forgotten came flooding back. I spent 30 years teaching Art in secondary schools and further education in Co. Durham. I took early retirement and moved to Keswick so I could be amongst the Lake District Fells and continue climbing and walking in mountains. I now live in Spain with my partner Maureen, spending a lot of time exploring the mountains of Europe and America. My paintings and drawings are a reflection of our love of mountains. I would love to hear from the people who were at Corsham during my years. Where are John O’Neil, Glyn Amos, ‘Marty’ and the many others of Group E?

It was great to be young and at Corsham. Peacocks, snowfalls, Ha!Ha!s the Avenue, the Bathhouse, Beechfield, the Court (stewed tomatoes for breakfast again!) Monks Park and all the people. Now it's great to be living on Cape Cod working as an artist, a bloody Computer, who'd a thought it in '64? Doing mostly run of the mill commercial work. Some illustrations for books and magazine and my main claim to fame, singing with a swing band at a very 'igh class 'otel in the summer. I have a 18 year old daughter following in my footsteps (not an artist, but a jazz singer and musical comedy actress). My wife is a singer also - very noisy household!

I would love to here from anyone I knew, I always feel like I have walked out of the movie too soon, let me know how your story is progressing.

Love to you all

Jeff

I really enjoyed visiting this site, which brought back long forgotten memories, and names of tutors from my era.

Not many people from my time at Corsham seem to have found this site yet, which is a pity! I was there from 61 - 64, and lived two years in Monks Park (army huts) and biked to and fro like everyone else! The last year I lived in the flat over Buckles - the one and only Corsham taxi service - with five others, just behind the High Street!

I remember evenings spent in The Duke drinking scrumpy and singing until we lost our voices! I remember the boys from Beechfield hanging all our bikes in the trees down the drive at Monks Park during the night! I also remember Bunny, the model for our life classes, who used to drive in from Gastard in the oldest car I have ever seen (it was so old that it had one MANUAL windscreen wiper only) etc. etc.

I am still in touch with Susan Gowler and Maureen Fitzpatrick. I would love to hear news of Dorcas Scott-Taggart, Fiona Nichols, Carol Maynard, Andie Parvin and others from our time! Also Brenda Daniels from Barbados (who lived in the Almshouses) and Huda Michael from Ramallah, Jordan.

I have been living in Rome, Italy for the last 35 years, and have lost touch with almost everybody.

Thanks again for this super website.

I was only at Corsham for two terms back in the summer of '66 but I remember it and some of the people well. Well, not so well really. Must have been something to do with my brief introduction to scrumpy. Come to think of it, I can't remember a thing.
Met Chris Lumgair recently. No, it must have been about twenty years ago. He still seemed the same apart from a new enthusiasm for something called computer graphics. Didn't understand a word he was on about. Still don't understand the things.
Transferred from Corsham in early '67 because I didn't share Rosemary Ellis' enthusiasm for Swiss typography and lack of enthusiasm for Fletcher Forbes Gill ideas. I remember the final straw was a lesson in Roman lettering by some old fogey down in Bath. Luckily I ended up at the RCA with Bob Gill as my tutor. It's been downhill ever since! At the RCA I bumped into Greg Hull again and was pleased to see he still had his Norton. Cor blimey, once you start reminicing, remeniscing, thinking back, it's difficult to stop rabbiting on and on and on...

What a fantastic site! I sat here for hours reminiscing over some of the best years of my life at Corsham. The parties in the Union Hut, wrapping Corsham Court gates in pink loo roll at 4am one morning, the midnight walks behind the Court looking for the Grey Lady ghost! The endless scrumpy, and freaking out on magic mushrooms at the Spread Eagle! I could go on and on. So nice to come across so many familiar names and so many that I had sadly forgotten... but I found you at last Claire!

Readers of this guestbook might like to know that an obituary for Michael Finn was published in the Daily Telegraph in April. All I can remember of him was that he was principal at Corsham while I was there. I think he made a point of introducing himself to all the new students and then became virtually invisible for the next 3 years. Having read his obit I find that a bit of a shame as he seems to have led an interesting life and produced some compelling work.

If I ever get the chance I'd like to see some of his work particularly now that my own interests are moving away from graphics to fine art. Does anyone out there know if and where any of his work is on public exhibition. [I believe most of his work was exhibited by the Great Atlantic Gallery in Cornwall where he lived, link is in Links page 2 against his name. The obituary from The Guardian posted 11.04.02 is here.] - Gerry

Comments 1972 Prospectus

Arrived Sept 1968 when the sculpture school was a brand new aircraft hanger, yes Paddy Allen was there too. The 8 sculpture lads were liberated from a disused toilet block so the one LP was played all night when the machines went off "After the Goldrush" Neil Young I didn't want to go anywhere else. Jim was also in the pop group and the rugby team.
Pre-Dip Fine Art was 6 weeks painting, which I mostly spent drawing in dots for Adrian Heath, then six weeks in sculpture, I stayed until June 1973 being sabbatical union president somewhere in the middle. We had a revolution in 1968 and Clifford and Rosemary Ellis the paternal principal and Mrs had to let the LEA student union money come straight to us. Was Tom Mann the first president? Then we had Peter whose dip show was unsatisfactory, Steve Hearn followed me.
The only people I've kept up with are Vaughan Hill, musician, and Denis Wright who only stayed a year.
Memories include living at Easton Court Farm for two terms, cycling through the winter but moving into half a semi in the summer. Nick Pope, Caralyn, Sue Boggis, Robin, learning photography from the technician, Mike Pennie, Ken Hughes, getting the student union building, cleaning up after parties, Swanage bus trip, Dave Petherbridge, John on sax, locals in the rafters in their underpants of the hostels, Lord Methuen and that composer chap in the grounds, a dutch girl putting flowers on the tables in the dinning room, the new dinning room being built, answering the telephone in the union office, getting TVs in the hostels, we had neither at home in the 60s, Alan Skidmore and Harry Beckett coming to play, booking a marquee for Medicine Head and booking them for £80 a few weeks before they made number one with "One and One is One" or something like that, painting my nails pink (the first and last time) for a fancy dress ball "garden of earthly delights" to which Vaughan and co came as the Mafia, booking a stripper with grubby underwear, "The Pigsty Hill Light Orchestra", Andre Bardigo, John Furnival's volkswagen and a girl called Frankie, "Dorothy" at Oxford, Dorothy from Darlington with embarrassingly large boobies, Jules and the "Fitters and Turners" newcastle brown friday pm drinkers going to Castle Coombe, spring flowers at Laycock Abbey, Heather in a side-car, John from Bath, Sidney Place, an african grocery shop in Bath, Pink Floyd, the smell of people returning from Glastonbury, Anthony, Andrew and Church House, Brian, Nigel Rolf, Nick with curly hair, Kai Moe, current buns, peacock feathers in the swimming pool, Saturday morning life classes in the barn, the man with the snake, Ian Robson, Silly Gilly keeping house for boys working on the M4 during the summer on wages, long walks, box tunnel, queuing for Rolling Stones tickets, seeing "Family" and "Mothers of Invention" in Chippenham, someone with a bubble car, Dave Hudson of Goole, Tom Coyle stealing cabbages, marmite sandwiches at 4.00, demonstrating against Mrs Thatcher in London when she was minister for education, Bridget from DOMSKI  - [I get the feeling there is more to this but the Guestbook column just ran out of space? - Gerry]

Always good to hear of news of Corsham. Hope some of our era are aware of the site, and if so get in touch.
Roy says he sold the MG - sad! Ann was in lodgings with Nita Ward and Milbra Pursell, then Clovis Keath, Anne-Marie Martinez and Sue Clegg. Many memories of others and some photos to dig out of the loft sometime.
Met Dave Wincop at a school in South Shields a while back - noticed his photo on Anne's pages.

We are both retired from teaching but continue Examination Moderation work for AQA.

What a brilliant site. Thanks for letting me know.
I shall have to sort out some pictures from my era - The Dylan, Stones, Who, Beatles era. The 'You've Lost That Lovin Feeling' Bridget Bond, Judy Box era. Tony Jackson are you out there? Preacher Deacon and his Blues Band, and The Wildflames live on in various Chris Garratt bands and mine (Rare Breed). Students of the 60's NEVER grow old.

For Tony Jackson and anyone else who remembers the top room in the Royal Oak and the landlord, Roy Forgan, a site with photos of current band - me with the mike.

What a wonderful website and idea to create it.
I was at Corsham between 84 and 87 taking part in the big move into Bath (such a shame...and never the same...how could it be?).
I have lots of photos, would you be interested in me sending them? It would be great to get in contact with anyone from around the same time or not, doesn't really matter, just nice to be in contact with anyone who shared in the Corsham experience whatever the date.

I was a 'registered alien' with the Corsham police; on a one year post-grad course after American college. It was a great year for me; lots of freedom to explore in art and design and I produced the portfolio I needed to get into grad school for graphic design. My best experiences were in the type shop learning to set type by hand and in the lithography studio. I still have the glass plates from my photos of huge plants growing in the Corsham court gardens. Would love to hear from anyone who remembers that year.

I became a book designer and now have been teaching design and typography and design history for 20 years in the US.

We were asking for any information/anecdotes on Stephen Russ for a book on him. Looking through the two publications on Corsham he is scarcely mentioned. We would like to correct this.

Interesting Moments in Life No. 2,847

13.30 hrs last Friday 15 March at the top of the old Tate steps following the "American Sublime" show, there I was standing, anticipating . . . a side glance here, a nervous smile there, is it? no it can't be, surely not? then yes! it is! it's them, we exchanged smiles, moved forward and kissed cheek to cheek, the first time I had seen Liz Martin (Graphics '66-'70) and Di Simpkins (Sculpture '66-'70) since 1969! They had initially hesitated because I no longer had my moustache, that went two years ago . . . Liz was hoping to bring John Sumpter with her but he was in Antibes (very Corsham?). Liz marched us off to the pub for what was supposedly going to be just a lunchtime drink, the pub was packed, then it emptied, then it filled again and we left nearly five hours and a few photographs later . . . . oh the memories, many laughs, a bitching session on some staff, (a good bitching session never did anyone any harm!) and an exchange of those stories you dare only tell many years later, plus helping each other with those forgotten names (how could I forget a name like Val Princeps? - where are you now?) and then what people we still know are doing now, how could so-and-so have got married and had kids . . . at first our meeting was like looking through the wrong end of a telescope, but as the afternoon wore on and the wine lubricated, then the telescope became so very short with razor sharp focus . . . this was the first time I had met someone after so long, but it's amazing how quickly the brain identifies and locates their speech patterns and verbal and physical mannerisms locked away in the memory bank, then the 33 yrs seemed more like 33 hrs. We hugged and kissed and exchanged e-mail addresses then parted happily, each going in a different direction, one glance over my shoulder and each had disappeared . . . we'll meet again, probably the summer, may add a couple more . . . who knows . . . let it be.

Great site!!! it is nice to see that someone cares enough to keep this great institution alive in our memories at least. I have many great memories from my time at BAA and many others memories involving Tim Beck. I will have to write my anecdotes down and submit them sometime. There's an idea, a stories message board - I have quite a few and I am sure many of the other Corshamites must do too.

Love to hear from anyone who remembers me. I worked in the freezing garage with Sue McMorran, Wes, Liz Marjoram, and so on. In fact, I STILL have some of their pots. For those who enquired - Piers Carey WAS a student and was last known living in Natal, S.A., where he was teaching arty stuff. By the way, didn't Angus spell his name Aonghus? Last time I saw him he was bald.
Me, I still live near Bath doing arty 3-dimensional things in other peoples gardens. The email address is the Man's-I'm a cyberphobe and you can't believe how bloody long it's taken me to do this.

Arrived at Corsham with Liz Talbot in '64. After I left taught in Hackney, then moved to Shetland for 11 years, had 5 kids, all now grown. Moved 'south' to Cromarty (Ross-shire) in '82 and have spent the past 20 years promoting all kinds of arts to the local community up here. Live in a barn on the shore of the Cromarty Firth....all welcome if you are up this way.
Anyone in contact with Greg Hull or Toby Birch?
Now run a study centre in a converted brewery for Robert Gordon University.

Terry (1962 to 1968 off and on) was the local RAF 'fixer' who played hockey for BAA and matched girls from Beechfield and Monks Park to the randy RAF blokes at Rudloe Manor (or was it the randy girls of BAA?) Actually married one himself in 1966. Left RAF took degrees at Cambridge and East Anglia and is now head of a Beacon primary. Liz studied Graphic Design from 64 to 68. She is in semi-retirement after 32 years teaching (20 years with Special Needs). She now works part time for me! We both have very fond memories of Corsham and the many friends there.
If anyone is near the East Anglian coast give us a look. Liz has been a JP for 22 years on a bench with Richard Morling who was the Obergruppenfuhrer at Beechfield in the 60's!

Greetings to BAA 1962-65 from Bryan Maycock, and 1963-66 from Gill (Clarke) Maycock.

It’s been a while since we saw first saw the Corsham page - thanks to Paul Sproll - and, of course, we have been meaning to sign the guest book ever since.

Gill and I have been in Canada since 1969: London, Ontario to 1974; North bay, Ontario to 1983; and Halifax, Nova Scotia to this time.

If you are curious as to how much of the time has been spent professionally - apart from bringing up our two, now married, kids (Ben and Ceridwen).

We have only been back to the Old Sod a few times and swing through Corsham whenever we have time and transport.

Oh to have had a piece of real estate at Beechfield. That is quite an impressive development. We assumed that no local artists or art teachers can afford to live there now.

We often wonder about our contemporaries - Eric Berry, Gaynor Dodman, Taffy (John Lewis), Rosie Parvin, Mike Penny, Mavis Poole, Jen Sutcliffe et al.

The site is excellent and has brought back many amusing memories.
I shared a room at the top of Ethelred House with Mike Hope for a while and then shared the same room with Andy Greenhalgh before we got moved to the common room at 40 High Street, due to fire regulation problems at Ethelred. I spent my final year in 43 Pickwick Road with Tina Wood, Bev Seth etc.
I have put various ex students on to the site who are going to hopefully send in some photos etc. The student doing the ballet act on one of Don Whiteford's photos I think is Mark Capper who was studying painting (I think). I still have contact with Andy Greenhalgh and occasionally Mike Hope, Tina Wood (married Neil Clayden - Painting), John Dickinson, Neil Adcock.
I do have a collection of photos and will aim to get some of them onto the site. The site I hope will grow to include many other contacts over time and I will endeavour to contact some of the people already listed.

Comments Paddy's country oasis, in an arty-farty world!

Well I ended up as the only female in the sculpture group of 1965-1969 and as you can see from Mike Marsden's photos, didn't quite make the team! however if you look carefully at the car in the background of the football photo you will see my car! Dear old MDL 880! Carted many an inebriated student around Somerset and Wiltshire. Also some very strange sculptures for exhibitions.
Unfortunately most of my photos have been lost - a dappy daughter consigned them all to the dustbin by mistake - wrong black bag! So if anyone has some photos of our time there, I would love to have some.
Wonderful memories, Yes the Newcastle Brown and curry nights. Singing the music from Doctor Zhivago on the snowy steps of Corsham Court, waiting for the coach to take us to an exhibition in London. Someone cutting the tubing to the welding torch in the old sculpture school in the Gatehouse, and nearly blowing us all up! The amazing giant feathered penis being carted on the back of the estate truck up to Beechfield...the memories are endless, I shall have to stop there.

This is great! All these links to old friends that I haven't seen for years. I was in that band with Don Whiteford when we supported the Thompson Twins. I don't think we even had a name, but we did have too much echo and excellent fun. Gus! Where are you now??

I was also Pres of the Union in 1981-82 and have great memories of my time as a student and as Pres. I really enjoyed the bands we had to play, The Danse (sic) Society, Slow Twitch Fibres, Black Roots, Blurt, Spirit Level...

I noticed a few mentions of Halloween parties at the Court. Anyone remember the red ink incident in 1981 (this may have been the last of those basement parties!).
