About this photo

In the early 1870s, the Duke of Cleveland's estate near to the town centre was given over to development. Some of it was used to create Stanhope Park, and it was here that the Grammar School of Queen Elizabeth was built in 1875. The school took in boarders, and its design featured an undercroft playground at one end.
