In a small town in south Wales stands this historic former school building that lies derelict and under threat from demolition.

Christopher Costelloe, Director of the The Victorian Society, said: ‘Cowbridge School is a beautifully crafted building, solid, handsome and capable of being reused. Its thoughtless demolition would be a huge blow to the town. Many other Victorian school buildings are in a similar position – these buildings can and should be reused.’
