Full Description

Lady Manners Secondary School was built in 1934 to a design by George Henry Widdows, which comprised a two-storey central entrance block with single storey wings extending forwards through right-angles to tall, twin hall blocks. It is constructed of gritstone with stone-slate roofs and has leaded-light, steel-framed windows in timber sub-frames. The original group of buildings is impressive; however, the school has been much extended and enlarged over the course of the 20th century. (1)
