Albert British Day Schools


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!

Ludworth School


Ludworth was opened in the Autumn of 1908 under the headmastership of Mr Alfed Heppleston, when it was part of the Derbyshire Education Authority. Following receipt of a large number of photos relating mainly to the headmastership of Mr Harold Butterworth between 1912 and the 1930s this album has been created to hold all photos relating to the school and those that were scattered throughout other albums on the site have been moved here to bring them all together.
