Perhaps the only surviving expression of Adwick Uniform

As every other CQD site before the UK referendum this website uses a CSS style sheet based on the former Adwick School’s uniform. The style sheet is still retained on the Archive for the Yorkshire Viking Blog and on this memorial site. If you are a former Adwick School pupil and would like to use the WordPress theme for your own blog, do get in touch!

My personal twin blogs have now dropped the Adwick Theme. The reasons for this are explained on the Archive for the Yorkshire Viking page.


I am going to commit blasphemy right now. As you all know, my recent posts have been somewhat affected by developments going on back where I grew up. I have now seen what they propose to do….

I am really sorry, to all who wanted to save our old school – but frankly, the plans are fantastic! If anything, once the old school buildings are destroyed, there will be more green space than there is now. The new school is to be built, a very impressive school at that, adjacent to the Great North Road.

So I wish them well. As for those who yet have some wistful longing for what now passes into history, a record of that shall also be made, in accordance with and as a condition of the selfsame planning permission that authorises the new facilities (I use the word “shall” quite deliberately, by the way, as opposed to the ordinary and usual auxiliary “will”).

I have only one word for this. It is this: WOW!

One Response to WOW!!
