The Bertha's had an entrance to Mt.St.Mary's RC School on the back street which took you into the yard near the priest's house which you can just see before the church in the picture.It had a chicken run at the back of it which went into the school yard. Then there was the boys school opposite with steps leading down to a small park area I can't remember the name of it but we used it for games from the school. There was also an orphanage just a bit round into the school yard.
