Life Before STOODLEIGH was created by Holladay 111
Hi there -
Those of you interested in the history of the School before Stoodleigh may be interested in the following images which, if you click the link (and I,m no technocrat so i'm hoping it will work) or copy & paste it :-

The premises at Paignton which the school started out in still exist. When the school moved to Stoodleigh it became a Private Hotel and then eventually became a property owned by Torquay Council.
It then was sold off into private ownership. Part of the building today is rented out to the Brixham Sub Aqua Club, or maybe its Deep Sea Fishing - anyway Fish Related!! some of it is residential. the gardens - Ravenswood Gardens - the name by which the area is still known as today has been taken over by the Burma Star Association and kept in good order. There are 2 Google earth images on a Word Doc that show view as it is today. the property looks east over Torbay towards Torquary.
I hope to gain access sometime inside the property - through the main doors all one can see is pictures of Fishes on the walls
and I haven't raised my hopes in finding any Historic Gems / images.
Thought some of you might like to know this
Regards

I note that the Google Earth images did not load - if you enter Cliff Road, Paignton into Google Earth you'll see the property as it is today - Thanks RH

This will show an image of an Advert for the School when it was located in Cliff Road Paignton, Devon. Advert was placed in the Paignton Townn Guide in 1927.
