Lovely building, hope that's a renovation taking place, not a demolition, and that they keep all the original features.


Comment by Ken R on 24th April 2013 at 00:15
Nice photo, what use are they going to put this school to after the reno??


Comment by Den s on 24th April 2013 at 00:20
Are they rebuilding it, or pulling it down?


Comment by Lizzie down under on 24th April 2013 at 02:31
Are they fixing it up???
Be nice when it is finished....cheers!!


Comment by Mick on 24th April 2013 at 05:16
This old school as been empty for years, dont know whats been holding them back from starting the rebuilding.


Comment by michael davies australia on 24th April 2013 at 08:56
Looks to small for a modern school,should make a good house for some one once its fited out


Comment by Ron D on 24th April 2013 at 09:14
It is a private dwelling.


Comment by Loz on 24th April 2013 at 09:56
It's being renovated after the work stalled for a few years. It will become a private dwelling.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 24th April 2013 at 11:03
Should be good once it's finished, a little too close to the busy road though.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 24th April 2013 at 12:17
It will make a lovely home when the reno is finished....all the history in the bricks.....cheers!!!

An interesting fact about this building,when it ceased to a school 21/25 years ago it reverted back to The Crowford Estate and was sold for somewhere in the region £30,000, it then became a nursery .
A similar fate was in store for Holy Family School Cale Lane ,which had the same covenant .However a number of years ago The Parish approached The Crawford Trustees who agreed to sell the land on which the school stood ,consequently when it ceased as a school it could be used as a Parish Centre .

Will make a wonderful home for some lucky person. All they need to do is paint the school yard at the back green, and they will have an equally wonderful low maintenance lawn

A good mate of mine used to live to the left of this building as you look at it about 35 years ago. Some good times up there
