Bluecoat School

Blue Coat School used to be a girls school and was on this spot for about 100 years until they were evacuated in World War 2.

The school was built upon the north west tower at the west end of the ruins of St. Mary's cathedral which was ordered to be demolished by greedy King Henry the 8th. You can see some of the remains of pillars from the old church here.
