    I couldn't find anything to confirm that it definitely was a school.

    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    Every term, teachers used to fill in their library service request forms, stating the topic they were teaching that term. In due course a box of books would arrivewhich would be sent back at the end of term. Sometimes, we would get historical artefacts too. All gone now, swept away by the fact that there’s more information available,online...and for free. Ashame in my view. Orrible vandalism here though.
    Tread carefully, you walk on others’ dreams.

    Nice bit of info and history, thanks. The vandalism, as said, is awful but them things do happen.

    It's not necessarily next to one. And an old sign give the name of it as a library service.

    In my day we had our library a seperate building from the school. What I'm reading here is a building which was used as a library for the school located in Hertfordshire.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
