Rear of The Friends School
Rear of The Friends School
The North of England Agricultural School was founded in 1841 by the local society of Quakers for the "labouring classes of those who are in any way connected with our Society", which actually meant those children from Quakers who married outside the faith. The children were taught in the skills of farm labourers and domestic staff. Eventually it became the private school known as The Friends School but still retained its Quaker principles. It closed in the final decade of the 20th century and this picture was taken in 1998 prior to the site's residential development. The building pictured is still standing and has been named Richardson Hall after Thomas Richardson a Quaker businessman who gave 5000 of the 6500 cost of the original school.
