    I got a pic of it in the summer when doing all the V streets. Pity, it looked an ornate and nice building.

    Funny thing is,Gedit was on the same achitecture as StGeorges CofE at the back of the new infants prefab school,which this also got knocked down when the slum clearence came about.

    For thelife of me couldn't understand why they knocked it down and thenbuild a prefabricated school on the main road?

    The opening gates to StGeorges was where the prefab school is now and the school yard was huge and the school coincide with the back end of StGeorges church.
