James Clark School


The former James Clark School, now converted to housing.

The school stood at the eastern end of St Leonard's Lane, overlooking Queen's Drive and looking out towards Salisbury Crags in Queen's Park.

The school was 'over the wall and railings' on the left-hand side of the road in this photograph looking down St Leonard's Lane, above

The Big Rock

"I have just been down memory lane, or should I say, St Leonard's Hill.  Here are two photos of The Big Rock in the school grounds where we played fifty years ago.

The James Clark School building has now been converted to flats."
