Chorley New Road Primary School had an open day Saturday the 14th of July 2018 from 12pm-4pm to allow past pupils and local residents to visit before demolition starts in the next 5-6 wks (ETA end of August / Early September 18).

So I went back to my primary school since leaving almost 35yrs ago(I left way back in 1985).

The original building was built in 1896 and has been there since, in 2003 a seperate annex was added, 2018 will see the new building completed and the old site removed to be parking and the addition of a MUGA pitch / area.

During my visit I met previous school friends & teachers which was great to reminisce and talk about the good old days.... ah the memories...
