The school building is doing a good job of hiding there, Dave :o)
It is an impressive building - 4 storeys(?) high - your setting gives an interesting, different perspective.

I was in the infant school there in the mid 60's. Miss Taberner scared me too death !!!!

I went to that school in the late 50's and early 60' until I went to Wigan Grammar school.

Miss Tabener was and as far as I know still is a wonderfull lady. Last time I was visiting from the US a couple of years ago I ran into her in town.
