Caption for Andover, British School, New Street 1906: The British School of 1859, demolished in the late 1960s, was much like the National School, now Andover Primary School (C of E Controlled) which still thrives today in lower East Street. PLB Architects of Winchester extended East Street School in 2000 for Hampshire County Council, creating a pleasant polychromatic construction popularised by William Butterfield in the 1850s.

Does anyone know where this was in Andover? My grandparents lived there.

We lived at Anton Mill House above Rooksberry Mill on the River Anton. My father kept cattle during the war in a field below the level crossing and I had to cycle after school to pump water for them in the field. The crossing only served the mill and came down from the Salisbury Road. Sterling Poultry owned the land behind the crossing house.
