Building intact. There is now longer a spire. Now has flat roof. OS records still have this as live. The school website mentions that the school reopened in 1973 after fire destroyed the roof.

Leith School Spire from the NW. Pitched roof long gone.

Lorne Street Primary School. Looks like a flat roof to me. It cost a whole 7,000 to build back in 1876! According to the school website "Many years later there was a fire which destroyed the roof and the school was forced to close" Leith is my stomping ground and this would have replaced the now defunct Dogs Home Rivet as my local. Gutted (no pun intended), but not entirely surprised :)

Long gone.
