    I was talking to someone the other week who reckons their brother did it. Said he had been sniffing glue.

    I think he said 78, but I thought it was earlier.

    Stanhope road school and dean road school merged to form west park school, that was the one that burned down I think.
  4. This agrees with that, doesn't give the year though.

    This site reckons the fire was in 1974, and has a photo.

    I reckon 74 as we had just moved to Stanhope Road at the end of 73 and it was a few months after that - I think it was around the time of the 74 World Cup
    It was definitely before I started at Mortimer comp in 1975 because I remember rumours about kids from West Park coming to our school as there was not enough room at West Park
