News Article Prompts Responses

Responses start to arrive following Gazette article

Thanks to all for the positive responses by email and through other contacts. These range from school and adult college memories to photos of artefacts dug up in Roman and Castle Road gardens. The influence of this special place can be seen throughout the community. We are also particularly keen to track down a photo taken of pianos being hoisted by crane when the Technical College (now Institute) School of Music was based temporarily at Grey Friars – and indeed any memories of this time. Much more to come later!
