How this has changed! Back in 1881 this development was the Cumberland Industrial School for Boys which closed in 1921 then it became the Grammar School for Cockermouth.

AND WHAT A FIND IT IS! A smashing three bedroomed, three storey semi-detached house which occupies a great position at the far end of the development with the advantage of a single garage, ample parking and a really charming informal garden with mature trees.
