Re: Ashton Grammar School on Old Road

Im not sure when the Secondary School became Cansfield, but I think the Grammar school moved to Byrchall in the mid sixties. I presume the Central School then got use of the old building, but when I was there it was blocked off apart from a classroom upstairs, a music room and a science lab downstairs.

The reason I am asking is because I have come across an old photograph of the inside of Ashton Grammar School of which I had no access. The photo has the name of William Ewart McClure on the back, as Headmaster.
