With all the Marlipins Museum photos and postcards in our collections this is a video we’ve been meaning to for many years and at long last have finally got round to it

What is intriguing is where they got the double light "church" window from to replace the old sash window?

Superb work Nelson.  The bottom one particularly deserves a hi-res page of its own.   Maybe put it as the banner on the home page too?

Near.. 1985 just North of the Norfolk Bridge... the latecomers realised the tide was getting very fast.  Typically the estate agents team hadn't had commissioned a proper survey before they started out and later discovered problems with rising damp.

Ah - exactly as in my part of the woods.  Planners rubber stamping anything that meets their housing quota, nothing to address the woefull underprovision of parking on new developments, and the old "affordable" housing trick to justify a development. Affordable is 80% of market rates so not affordable in every sense of the word.  And then there is infrastructure - or rather there isn't. M
Maybe they'll stretch to putting in some fancy coloured tarmac and a bollard...

Have looked up the current plan and see that I had a wrong impression of the size of the classroom ( The NW projection from the main building ) I had imagined that it was much longer......that is where the photograph was taken.
I am certain the photo was taken with the pupils sitting on a small wall (18 inches high and 12 inches deep) that contained a flower bed and that was infront of the crittall windows of the two reception classrooms on the most North Westerly arm of the Infants school.  The wall was broken by three steps up to the double classroom doors of each class.

The change in layout of the school was because the Juniors was built first, and then the infants, and the Juniors cloakroom added later.
