Full Description

Newton Primary School was built in 1910 to a design by George Henry Widdows and has a unique plan. There is a central linear block formed by the hall, two classrooms and the twin entrances. Four further classrooms are set splayed at the ends of this central block. There are extensive original railings. Unfortunately one end was destroyed by fire, but the building is otherwise largely unspoiled and, were it not for the fire, it could well have been worthy of listing. (1)
