TF1020 : Beware of pedestrians

taken 6 years ago, near to Bourne, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Beware of pedestrians
Beware of pedestrians
This is the 1960s central building and school hall of what used to be the Robert Manning school, and is now the Bourne Academy.

According the sign the pedestrians can be dangerous. I do hope our language is taught a little better inside.
The Robert Manning school
Formerly the Robert Manning school, this was the Secondary Modern built to complement Bourne Grammar. It became The Robert Manning Technology College, and is now Bourne Academy

Robert Manning, or Robert de Brunne, 1264-1340 was a medieval monk of the Gilbertine order who wrote in Vernacular English, among the first to record our language. It is rather a shame that the school is no longer named after him.

The elaborate knot used as the school's emblem is the Wake's Knot, the heraldic device which also appears on the town's crest, and is associated with the vigil kept at the Abbey by Hereward before deciding to fight the Normans. Allegedly. In the version used by the school when it was a technology college, the ends were tied incorrectly and it would not have worked. The monochrome version produced for the new Academy seems to have been corrected.
