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

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?

It is a private dwelling.

It's being renovated after the work stalled for a few years. It will become a private dwelling.

Should be good once it's finished, a little too close to the busy road though.

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
