Re: Re: The Great 1930s Scheme
It’s a good piece alright. The red brick girls school across the road is also an attractive collection of buildings – needless to say the girls, as usual, got the dressed, sensitive treatment, with a bombastic monolith reserved for boys…
Looking down from the schools is the delightful St. Agnes Park, the main avenue leading down to the village and church (bizarrely built off-axis). Essentially it links the Crumlin Scheme to the existing old village.
No doubt its trademark c.1950 concrete lampposts will get the chop before long 🙁
