    It was on the corner of Fountains Road, opposite the church.
    By the 1930s it was called Walton Lane Council School.
    Could you post the picture, or give a link, please?

    Simon, you can just post a link to the ebay listing if there's a larger picture available to view on there.

    Hi all,
    I attended this school in the mid-50's. It was used as an annrxe to Walton Technical College in Carisbrooke Road (opposite the Tram/Bus sheds).

    At that time the front part (onto Walton Lane) had been replaced with a modern-built section where building trade apprentices did practical work.

    The rear part (down Fountains Road)was pure 1850's inside, but we kids liked it as the discipline was slacker than in Carisbrooke Road. The ceilings in the classrooms must have been 25ft high.

    Walton Tech ceased to exist around 1959/1960 when we became the John Hamilton Technical High School in a newly built school off Breckfield Road North in Everton. I'd guess that the remains of the original building would have been demolished soon after. I don't think I ever went down Fountain's Road again, but I believe it all went in slum, clearence.

    Cheers,
    Frank Savery,
    Ulverstone,
