Hi Dave. 

I've attached a jpeg of a 1905 postcard of the old place

it looked a ruin even then!

Hope it's of use.  Best wishes,  Den

The School is now closed


After 128 years, the school, bequeathed to Dunstable by Frances Ashton, has closed its doors to pupils for the last time.

What's next? The developer, Weston Homes, says a sympathetic conversion into residences for some 100 people. Time will tell.

See DSOBA Newsletter for more details

This means our Annual Lunch will no longer be held at the old School but will be held at the Dunstablians Rugby Football Club at Thorn Turn, Bidwell. The first of which is to be held on August 20th 2016. Click on the red link below for a map.
