    Glasgow School Board The Education Act of 1872 in Scotland laid the basis for the modern education system. The most immediate thing it did was to take control of education out of the hands of the churches, with the exception of the Catholic and Episcopalian churches, and place it in the hands of popularly elected school boards. A nonsectarian system of public schooling was established and subject to the general control of the Scotch Education Department (SED), based in Whitehall, London....

    Great Post! Only a handful of miles from my home, yet I've never seen nor heard anything of this place. My friend who hikes over kinder quite often had never heard of it either. Introduced another newbie to this site.

    Hi Hughie. Brand new member with some great locations. I live only a handful of miles from Buxton and remember going to an illegal rave in one of these buildings. It looked a lot different that night, oh so many years ago (mid-90's), with the laser light shows and the smoke machines. Great pics and concise info. Roll on summer. Stay safe. Muddy.

    No history on this Im afraid, its just another derp farm the likes of which we have many around Northants, Strangely Iv known about this for years but never bothered having a look, probably because these are most often the same but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Nothing here really & the place is a structural wreck but has an unusual beauty to it. Its a shame really it has a prominent position overlooking Pitsford Res & would of once been a desirable property.

    I see this building nearly every day, never went in it when it was open so it is really interesting to actually see inside. I heard there was significance in the Disney stained glass windows. Such a beautiful building, shame it has just been left to rot like that

    Introduction; Yes Iím a bit late to the party, again. Story of my life, eh. But we were in the area anyway and I couldnít just drive past those famous gates without popping my head in and having a look, could I!? Even today, this place is quite majestic. It certainly made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up when I stopped and thought about the history here; the YEARS (Over 300!) of industry, and the sadness of how it all came to an end.

    Grand Theatre The Doncaster Grand was constructed in 1899 and originally stood on a prominent site in a shopping street facing the main railway station. However, town centre improvements robbed it of any sensible context and it is no longer in a street, but attached rather indirectly to the Frenchgate shopping centre. It still faces the station, however is separated from it by a busy inner ring road which comes so close that it has actually snipped off a lower corner of the stage house....

    When I was in Tintern on September I they have tried to tidy it up a bit by painting a mural on the hoarding facing teh main road entitled "The Marian Way" It is the first phase of a Words and Landscape project and development of a Pilgrimage route, proposed for 2021 by Friends of Our Lady of Tintern. The circular path, which will begin at this point, will be mapped onto parts of a mediaeval Pilgrimage route to and from Tintern Abbey, taking modern day walkers along the arduous Stony Way...

    Fascinating! My father and I actually stayed there for a couple of nights when we took a trip on PS Waverley and then went over to Aran with the car. Good to see that lift again. It had manual doors and there was a constant loop recorded message playing inside the lift reminding users to close the doors on exit - because if you didn't it would remain on the floor you alighted in and prevent others from using it. Obviously funds must have been tight back then otherwise the lift would have been...
