OLD SCHOOL DAYS - Sheringham County Primary School
We have been given the old photograph below by Mr Shepherd, who we would like to thank. It is of Mrs Wilton's class.

This was taken in the gardens of 'Hillcot', Abbey Road, approximately 1942-43, after the school had been moved into private houses following a near miss in an attack on the school or railway line in broad daylight.
We thought that this would be an appropriate time to put in the photos below, kindly supplied once again by Violet.

The old school stood on this site for many years prior to being sold off for development in 1987. It was sold on the instructions of Norfolk County Council by auction on Friday 27 March, 1987. The Awction was held at Southlands Hotel.
Sheringham Community Paper
The vendors write-up described it as 'Former Primary School Buildings occupying a valuable site of approximately 0.92 acre in the heart of the Town Centre, with planning permission for re-development or conversion'. Looking back, maybe they should have kept it in use!
