Default Broomhill School

My family and I now live in the Old School House, South Broomhill. I have done some preliminary exploration of the history of the house, and the school, and would be grateful for any further information.

Hi Alan, do you actually mean the old school at Red Row?

On the thread for Red Row there is a photograph of "Red Row House" which is the old school house.

I believe the Chevington schools opened about 1874 ish and tenders were placed in the newspapers in February 1878 for the building of a dwelling house for the Chevington School Board.

Red face South Broomhill Schoolhouse

Question: Alan says South Broomhill. Could he mean the large house on the north edge of St Johns Estate and which is wedged in with Hadston Estate now? There is a older type house, with garden set back from the road but which would have been on the northern fringe of South Broomhill, perhaps at the west end of where North Row was.
Just a thought because I cannot recall that house being built so it would be early 20th century. Maybe someone can find a old OS or council map of South Broomhill.

Is this the one next to Elpha Lodge near the Country Parks*? Was it on a bigger plot that was subdivided recently? I cannot relate the footprint of the house as it stands to the outline of the old school- was something demolished too?

*I should add The "Country Parks" was a club / nightclub some time ago, now converted into housing which is the terrace south of you - assuming I'm in the right place. Last time I was in the Country Parks was 1992 - just where have all the years gone??
