Just an update. Demolition has started at the Hawthorne road end of the school. The music rooms and drama hall are being demolished. Couldn't get pic as I was in a car today.

Questions:- Who owns this building? Who owns the land? Who gets the cash for the land? Which idiot ordered such a fine school building to be demolished?

Todays rumour heard was that it is going to be an Amazon. com warehouse. It would be nice to finally know what was to become of the land.

17th October. I went back to work after a week off and I was surprised by how fast the progress is.

The chairs in the above pic are in the previous picture from 5/10/12 so use those as a marker. It is where the sports hall stood.

Patch of earth where sports hall stood.

They are halfway along the main corridor now.

I hope you all don't think I'm a little obsessed with this! It was my school though and since I work opposite it is easy to snap a few pics now and again :)

Only the Art and Cookery classrooms left! These mounds of earth are where the sports hall stood. Kind of hard to get your bearings there anymore.

Pure vandalism what a waste of a good building and a further breakup of the community.

This is the last remaining wall. It is from the gym. The 6th form block went on my week off work at the end of nov, so I missed getting pics of that.

here is a zoomed in one of the gym wall

It's taken 11 weeks to demolish and clear the site. A lot of memories were made in these buildings, some good, some bad! If any former pupils are interested, a facebook page has been set up called 'memories of St Wilfrids' A whole load of people have reconnected through it and have shared some great stories and pictures. This has been something I didn't want to just pass into dust. I hope in the future people can find these pics and remember and have a smile :)

I was told that it looks like work is going on at the St Wilfrids site. Does anyone know what's going on up there?
