The donor of the image Val Ryan remarks “I used to have classes here when I first started school in 1950. Miss Palliser and Miss Yeadon were teachers.
The playground was in front of this wooden clad building, next door was a York stone clad building which had a flight of unguarded stone steps running up the side.”

Editor’s Note: This wooden building was also utilised as the 17th Airedale Scout and Cubs Hut during the 1950s/60s, as well as temporary school accommodation when the National School burnt down in 1951. I remember this hut with fond memories myself and of the steep unguarded stone steps next door as referred by Val Ryan. Jack Brayshaw. 06 June 2022.
