Old School on Bushell Road, Little Neston

Found this photo on Google, absolutely love it!  In approximately 1961 I remember going there as a child, there was a partition which divided the inside into two classrooms.  There used to be a piano after you entered the main door on the right.  My class was on the left of the partition and the other class was on the right and there was a canteen for school dinners in there too.  There was the playground at the back of the building with a wire fence:  I used to look out onto the tennis courts and park, the view was great there was also a stream on the other side of the fence with all kinds of wildlife there and I remember a regular visitor was the kingfisher bird.  I had left Ness Holt School to go to this School and after Bushell Road I then went onto Burton Road School in Neston.  Such happy days!

That's now used as the Masonic hall. I've attached a link to an article on the first world war and it has a very old picture of Burton road school. I used to go there in the early seventies
