https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marianne_Faithfull

Lifted of Wiki…..may of been Newbury as she seems to of spent early life in Reading, the reference to Brixton, is probably Brixham Road Reading, otherwise its one hell of a commute :lol:

“Her family lived in Ormskirk, Lancashire, while her father completed a doctorate at Liverpool University.[8] She spent some of her early life at the commune at Braziers Park, Oxfordshire, formed by John Norman Glaister, where her father, who was instrumental in its foundation, lived and participated. Her parents divorced when she was age 6,[8] after which she moved with her mother to Milman Road in Reading. Her primary school was in Brixton. Living in reduced circumstances, Faithfull's girlhood was marred by bouts of tuberculosis. She was a charitably subsidised (bursaried) pupil at St Joseph's Roman Catholic Convent School, Reading, where she was, for a time, a weekly boarder.[9] While at St Joseph's, she was a member of the Progress Theatre's student group”
