Transcript for Colin Drakefield

Colin: "We’d just go in there mooching around, walking around because it was like a labyrinth. As I say we used to climb over and we’d spend a couple of hours there mooching around, walking along the walls and jumping across."

Interviewer: "Was there anybody that ever looked in on these, to check on these to see if any children were playing in there?"

Colin: "You weren’t supposed to go in there anyway, that’s why they had the wall built around and a gate there."

Interviewer: "You never got in any trouble for being in there?"

Colin: "No, not really. If we saw anybody we’d go in the opposite way, you know, because you weren’t supposed to be in there anyway."
