    I know some of you have asked about the old college.     I was at the college in 1968/69 on a 1 year pre apprentice      course     After a lot of searching and the help of the kind staff    at LEEDS LOCAL STUDIES LIBRARY, i have the location     and photos.     The college was at one time Ellerby Lane School on      Cross Green Lane.     Here is a photo from that exellent site LEODIS.     The Fish Hut Pub was across the road.

I went there in the late 70's. I got the highest ever score for anyone in a plastering exam in the Leeds area at that time!

This is another old branch of the Building College.    Darley Street School, demolished many years ago. Thanks to Leeds Local Studies who confirmed this was part of the college, they sent me a map showing the old school as the Building College. Thanks to Leodis for the photo.
