Ex-school demolished

THE former Hensingham Infant School in Whitehaven is being demolished.

going, going, nearly gone: The former school at Hensingham

It has been purchased by building and joinery contractors WR Richardson Ltd, of Winder, Frizington.

The building – which was latterly called Melbreak House – should be down by the end of next week but it is not yet certain what is being planned for the site.

The family-owned business was responsible for the Falcon Court apartments developments in Irish Street, Whitehaven.

It was commended for the complex in the Best Large Housing Development category at the LABC Building Excellence Awards.

Tell us your memories of attending Hensingham Infants...

Have your say

I attended this school 1998-01 and can honestly say it was the best time in my life - fantastic and supportive staff who genuinely cared for the kids and their education. Would like to thank all of them for there input in my life and I'm gutted they've demolished the building that housed such good memories.
