New Development Lady Margaret Gardens

Post by Roger Mellie »

Does anyone know of the history of the land where the new development is being built? Lady Margaret Gardens aka High Oak Grove.

I used to live in Cromwell Road aboyt 15 years ago, and cannot remember what was there before..or if indeed it was just a greenfield site.

It was trinity school up until the 80's. Think it sat empty for many years. The houses along tower road were the tennis courts, and where the big building is now was the car park. Lady Margaret gardens is where the school was and where High Oak grove is now was the playing field.

I think after it was a school it was council offices for a while until it was sold and the houses built on it.

part of it was council offices after the school closed, but then it was empty for several years. And now the schools we have a full, and the council has no plan for what to do next.
