Hello Billy – interesting topic. St Luke’s junior school certainly still had use of a sports field off Upper Villiers Street in the nineteen-fifties.  It was accessed along a narrow side road a short way uphill from the gate of the Sunbeam works.  I have an idea the side road may have been only partly made-up.  I attended the school between ’55 and ’59 and we used to walk up the hill for games on this field – possibly a remnant of a larger one. I also remember sports days,  with coloured bands of tape to show our team or ‘house’, never being quite fast enough to be in the first three, and tripping over in giggles in the three-legged race.
