Demolished school memories

editorial image

This photograph was taken in 1991 and is of the school on the corner of Beardall Street and Duke Street, which is now demolished. From the ‘infants’ school, children had to go to Butlers Hill or Spring Street ‘juniors’; then back to the ‘secondary’ girls or boys. In the 1950s this building was Beardall Street Girls. Many thanks to Maureen Newton of Hucknall History Society for providing us with the picture.

If you have an old picture you would like to share with the Dispatch readers, email to or drop it into our community postbox at Hucknall Library on South Street with a little information and contact details so it can be returned.
