Prior Park College fire 1984

I was on my day off in and was at my insurance agents on the Lower Bristol road, hearing two tones I looked out of the window and was surprised to see fire engines coming into Bath.
When I called the office I was told Prior Park College was on fire and a photographer was on the way.
Knowing the famous view was looking up from the grounds but the firefighters were on the opposite side I decided to take a look for a different view.
In the days before the National trust took over the only way into the grounds was through someone’s garden.
When I knocked on the door for permission to go through I was greeted by a woman who asked why I wanted to get in.
I explained and she said her husband was the school caretaker and he’s on day off and at the barbers.
She dashed off to call her Husband and I wandered into the grounds and took this picture.
