Broughton Tower… Grand steps

Canon 5D No exif data

Brougton Tower dates from the eleventh century and was added to from time to time over the next eight hundred years. Most recently the whole building was divided up turned into apartments. In the nineteen fifties it was a school that I was fortunate enough to attend. Gardening botany and long country walks were an unusual part of the curriculum that have never been forgotten!

  1. i went 2 the school in the 90s i had some of the best times of my teens there wish it stayed a school

  2. I would like to know if this school in 1958 was a school for sick children with chest complaints if so l was a resident there for a year with many other children ,this looks very familiar I was only 10 year old at the time can anyone give me some information regarding this .

  3. I went to school here from 1982-1985 and they were the best three years of my life from 8-11yrs old. Man! I’m 40 now and feeling very old. I remember a lot about being here and even as to the best ways to climb my favorite trees. It really sucks that it was sold off as apartments and that no one gets to go to school there anymore.
