Derelict School

     This derelict building is situated on the corner of Claremont and Morley Street, just a short walk from the town centre.  Composer Frederick Delius was born only a few doors away at No.6 Claremont, but this building was formerly  Fox's School of Commerce.  The school taught shorthand, typing and book-keeping to a high standard and was run by a no-nonsense Mrs. Whitely.  The school closed some years ago and the building is now in very poor condition.  Writing on the door warns not to enter as there is no floor behind the door.
