Albert British Day Schools


thought-to-be-albert-schools.jpg

The Albert British Day Schools were established in 1868 by the Carver family in the Sunday school buildings on Church Lane that were linked with the Congregational Chapel (now United Reformed Church) that they had erected on Hibbert Lane in 1865. Apparently attendance at the school ensured half-time employment at Hollins Mill!
