St Nicholas Primary School, Beverly

Notification of plans to demolish a school in Beverly:

Yet another Victorian primary school is being sold to a developer for a quick receipt for the council. Developers who lurk around council asset managers waiting for a bargain tend to be somewhat predatory, and are not the type of people to have the scruples that would see the beauty in such a building.

This is a stunning public building, which is still robust and fit for purpose. The variety of gables and the qoin features on the windows bring so much to the townscape here.

And it looks like a school, unlike new efforts at education facilities, which tend to look like a series of boxes adorned with serviceable landscaping and a few rainbow murals.
