Red Rock School
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??
Are they rebuilding it, or pulling it down?
Are they fixing it up???
Be nice when it is finished....cheers!!
This old school as been empty for years, dont know whats been holding them back from starting the rebuilding.
Looks to small for a modern school,should make a good house for some one once its fited out
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
