New village school replaces temporary building built 88-years ago

  • Description

    Northern Echo, 17th April 2013. "...A TEMPORARY primary school built almost a century ago where pupils once carried gas masks in case of a German air raid has been replaced by a new £3.4m building. Kirk Merrington Primary School, near Spennymoor, was built 88-years ago. The walls were reinforced with chicken wire, plaster and wood, but no one minded too much as it was always supposed to be a temporary building. Something more sturdy would replace it....."
