Charles Spencer, Maidwell Hall and Nevill Holt

The publicity surrounding Earl Spencer's early memoir A Very Private School, which details his abuse at Maidwell Hall, reminds me of one of the most important posts on this blog, though it's not important because of anything I wrote.

If Maidwell Hall was the most prestigious prep school around here in the Seventies, then Nevill Holt was its closest rival.

And on that post I have dozens of comments detailing the abuse that took place there.

Someone in the field has told me that when professionals talk about child abuse scandals that were not sufficiently investigated, Nevill Holt comes high on the list.
