Red House - John Lyon School

Categories: Education

Bought by the school in 1956, its opening in 2013 was probably following a major refurbishment of some kind.

At Lyonian Association we learnt: "The Red House Memorial Garden contains several trees planted in memory of Lyonians: Michael Burrell (OL 1949-1956), Lyndon Budd (former teacher), Adrian Gaynor-Smith (OL 1950-1957), and Duncan Whicelo (see separate entry). The garden also contains the War Memorial to all OLs who died in the First and Second World Wars."

The north, road, elevation shown in this photo, is much earlier than the large c.1910 extension at the back, a part of which can be seen to the right of this photo.
