Cronehills School has not been demolished yet! All but one of the houses in Hardware Street have been boarded up, the only one occupied is next to NS-Garage, who are still trading. The BP petrol station has gone, the health centre, and the church. I was around that area a few weeks ago taking photographs. My father, his brothers and sisters, and my partners mother attended that school, hence the interest. I will sort through the images and post a couple.

Hi Chris,
             here's a couple for you taken today, would have taken more but my battery went dead.  >:( >:(
 hopefully yewtreeboy will sort some out for you!





next time i'm passing i'll make sure my battery is fully charged and take a few more, i can't believe how it's changed round there, i was based at the top end of the high street for years and used to fill up at the BP station.  :o

best wishes, Tony

ps.....you could have picked a better team to support..... :P :P :P

Hi Chris,  :) forgot to say welcome in my earlier post  ::)

I don't live too far away from "Baggie" land and have even been known to visit the Hawthorns on more than one occasion (under severe duress  ::) )
I've got a soft spot for the Blues   :D  (soft in the head i think, supported them through thick and thin -mostly thin- for about 30 years )

there's always someone on here who can help out so just ask away  :)
good luck with your searches,

Best wishes, Tony
