Finally posting this one.

History
"Parkview Community College of Technology (or simply Parkview School) took over the former grammar school buildings naming the boys school Fraser Building and the girls school Auld Building. Both buildings were connected via the a new sports department and sports hall, while an extension to Fraser Building included Parkview's technology faculty. In 1979 Up to 2009, Parkview was Barrow's largest school in terms of pupil numbers and land area, with around 1,000 pupils attending the school." -- Wikipedia


It used to be a beautiful building that retained it's early-1900s flair throughout. The building was demolished a few weeks after these were taken, so these are possibly the last photos that exist of the place. I only got into the east wing of the building as I think I heard some people in the other wing and could'nt be bothered sleuthing - just wanted a casual look.


iPhone quality only sorry, didn't take my full kit with me this time around. Also I'm sorry if they're too big.
